Hey one last question than I will close this question also.
When I take RMAN backup where does the backup is stored with catalog and without catalog. and If we need to restore this backup on different system than just copying this backup and pasting on different machine and issuing restore backup will that work

The backup is stored on the database server (or disks the database server can see). The location can be tweaked with the script and spfile parameters.

What is stored in the catalog is the metadata about the backups. Things like the backup sets, archived redo logs backups etc...

With Catalog: RMAN stores all the metadata in an Oracle database. This is typically a separate database.

Without catalog: RMAN stores this metadata in the controlfile.

>>If we need to restore this backup on different system

I suggest you read about this in the docs.

Did you post this in the wrong question?

I always find starting with the first part of anything with multiple parts works the first one.
