I put the RMAN catalog in the same DB as the Grid Control repository.  If you 
create a separate instance, you're pulling memory resources away from other 
database instances on the same server.

To me it seems like a good idea to create a catalog to use with RMAN.  
The databases where I will be running RMAN are on both AIX and Linux boxes.  
I'm thinking I should create a new database just for RMAN catalogs.  Does 
anyone see a reason why I shouldn't create a separate database?  And if I do 
create it, should I put in on the Linux box running Grid Control?
