We are doing cold backup to disk using RMAN on 8.1.7. The catalog was created sometime ago and we successfully performed hot backups. I don't know after turning off archivelog that it might cause the catalog to be messed up. I checked rc_database by connect as rman user, and the database was register there ok. However running "select owner from dba_objects where

as SYS user, didn't find anything.

Iam thinking about clean it up.
Here are the error messages.
