It suggests that you are having a database (finance) do dual duty, both as an operational business database AND as the home of the rman catalog. Not a good practice. The catalog should be in its own, dedicated, database.
Hi i am running oracle database 11.2.0 on windows xp at home pc
I have 2 databases ie. orcl and finance
I created a user and catalog on finance database and exited from RMAN
now each time when i want to connect to a specific database i have to set ORACLE_SID=orcl or finance
I want to register orcl as target database with recovery catalog which is on finance
What should i do?
I did try with following command and received the error
C:> rman target / catalog cat1@finance
it connect to orcl but not finance database while both are runnning. If i set oracle_sid=finance it connects to catalog database but not with orcl.
How can i connect to the both databases on the same machine to register my orcl database with recovery catalog on finance database???
