Please confirm this for me.

I remember I open one the thread in here about RMAN b/c I had some issues with RMAN. Any way, the question is "can we have RMAN catalog on diffrent server with the target database???" From what I know, when I had problem with RMAN, one of the peers advise that my problem was RMAN recovery catalog is on diiferent server with my target database which was right b/c I moved RMAN to the same server and it worked ok. I am reading RMAN 9i book now, and it said I can have RMAN on on the administrator desptop which is different location with the target database.

I am little bit confused.

Please advise.
