Building server to house RMAM catalog/repository database.
Posted on 2011-09-28
My organization is in the process of purchasing a server to be used for the RMAN repository database. I've been asked by the System Administrators about the physical layout of the server. I was able to give them a basic layout for the RMAN repository database for example, I asked for thDrives for the following areas: System, Temp, Undo, Recovery Cat Schema (Data), Online Redo logs, Archivelogs, and Backup (FRA). What I didn't see was an area for the Index in any of the ORACLE RMAN documentation anywhere or when the documents referred to a Recovery Cat Schema or what I call the Data area. Will this so-called Cat Schema area also contain the Indexes?
Is there a better layout of the the RMAN repository? Any suggesstions on how the experts would do this?
