Hello everyone,
I'm curious how you all are going about backing up your recovery
catalogs.  Do you do it through rman backups, or logical exports, or
both?  I've always done it through logical exports (exp), then
compressed and backed up to tape through Netbackup with bpbackup - all
scripted to run very smoothly and automatically after each database
backup and archive log backup.  This has served me well in the past, but
now I'm setting up a new server and was just reviewing this
configuration and the documentation that recommends backing up the
recovery catalog via rman instead, so I'm considering changing my ways
but not sure if that's a good idea.  Just curious what others are doing
and if you have any compelling reasons for doing it one way or the
