I am configuring an RMAN catalog database. While sizing the System, Temp, Undo, etc. I stopped because  I was uncertain whether the RMAN repository database has Archivelogs or not? So does the RMAN database use Archivelogs? From what I've read I don't see any getting built. Can you clear this up for me.

Thanks,

If you are using a a Catalog database then I would suggest it be in Archive Log mode.

This should have been specified when you build the database.  If it wasn't, just enable it.

The expert let me know that the RMAN catalog can put into Archivelog mode, even though the manuals did not state that the catalog could be put into Archivelog mode.

Thanks Experts Exchange,

Not sure why it was confusing.  The RMAN catalog is just another Oracle database and behaves as such.
