I am trying to create recovery options to my company we use oracle 9I r2 and at present use a 3rd party backup facility which I have no faith in. I want to use RMAN but I have a few questions referring to it
Recovery catalog yes /no what is the benefit of this.
if recovery catalog does this need to be on a different server say A Disater recovery (DR) server.
if so how would you recover with this if you have nothing else but this would I need additional files
backing up archive logs does it delete the logs afterwards or is this a os procedure.
Just a few questions but this will help me decide (I Think) what do do next
