The RMAN catalog contains a pointer to where RMAN backed up the archive log 
file to (tape or disk). The actual log file is not stored in RMAN.

If an archivelog has been physically removed from a system, but there's 
metadata in the rman catalog for that log, can it be restored from the catalog? 
I thought the catalog contained only the metadata, but a dba just told me he 
could restore from the catalog, even though the file was no longer available on 
the system. 

This is Oracle version 11.2.
