RMAN Compatibility: Scenario

Assume that you maintain a production databases of the following releases:

  • 9.2.0

  • 10.2.0

  • 11.2.0

You want to record RMAN repository data about these databases in a single recovery catalog database. According to Table B-2, you can use a single 11.2.0 recovery catalog database with a 11.2.0 catalog schema for all target databases. Ensure that the version of the RMAN client used to back up each target database meets the following requirements:

  • Use the 9.2.0 RMAN executable to back up the 9.2.0 database.

  • Use either the 9.2.0 or 10.2.0 RMAN executable to back up the 10.2.0 database.

  • Use any RMAN executable to back up the 11.2.0 database.
