Hello all,

I am facing an issue with when I backup archive logs.
Because of the disk space I want to take the backup of the archivelogs but send it to different path at the same time the backup is taken because I could have to its original path and then copy and remove but not enough disk space.

For example Archivelogs are producing under:
but when I give the follwing command:
RMAN>backup archivelog all delete input;
I want to add something that will send the backup file under e.g. /Backup/archivelogs/

How can I do that. is it something like:
RMAN>backup archivelog all delete input '/backup/archivelogs/'


Thanks in advance

format '/bkp_data/arc_bkp/arc_%d_%s_%u.bkp';
crosscheck archivelog all;
delete archivelog all;
release channel d1;

with the backup of archive_log_file will be placed in /bkp_data/arc_bkp directory.
