    run the Oracle patch.
    that should upgrade RMAN (assuming there is an RMAN upgrade).

    you just might have to upgrade the catalog if you have one.

    In metalink click the patch button on the left. Then click the link labeled "Quick Links to the Latest Patchsets, Mini Packs, and Maintenance Packs " then select database, and navigate to the approporate patch for your server (8.1.7.4) for your server version!! The patch will have a readme. Print it out and follow it exactly!!!

    Not positive, but I believe Oracle will stop supporting 8.1.7.4 in December 2004... Perhaps you should move to 9i... Or, beter yet, 10g.
