I successfully created the recovery catalog in a database called kris. The other database is sonata.
This is the transcript

C:>rman TARGET/RCVCAT rman/rman@sonata

Argument Value Description
target quoted-string connect-string for target database
rcvcat quoted-string connect-string for recovery catalog
debug none if specified, activate debugging mode
cmdfile quoted-string name of input command file
msglog quoted-string name of output message log file
trace quoted-string name of output debugging message log file
append none if specified, msglog opened in append mode
nocatalog none if specified, then no recovery catalog
Both single and double quotes (' or ") are accepted for a quoted-string.
Quotes are not required unless the string contains embedded white-space.

You have two connections to make. You need to connect to SYS on the target and the catalog owner.

c:> rman rcvcat rman/PASSWORD@tns_alias target sys/PASSWORD@tns_alias


C:> rman
RMAN> connect rcvcat rman/PASSWORD@tns_alias
RMAN> connect target sys/PASSWORD@tns_alias

Read article "Maintaining RMAN Respository" in MetaLink. This will help you greatly.
