This script performs an upgrade of RMAN base catalog and corresponding
VPC users schemas to a new VPD model. RMAN base catalog schema names
have to be supplied as command line parameters. Up to 10 schema names
can be supplied per script execution. When -all is specified the
script attempts to detect the RMAN base catalog schemas automatically

 

Now try to create the catalog, it should work.
