Hi,

We took the rman backup on tape using 'ArcServe' Backup agent. Now we are not having tape library attached. We did not use catalog.

We now created the Catalog and taking the backup on Disk.

I want to remove the old backups (tapes) from rman repository but if i run the command:

RMAN> allocate channel for maintenance device type sbt;
RMAN> delete obsolete;


It then hanged and shows the wait class 'Administrative'.

Please help me to remove the previous tape backups from RMAN repository.

Thanks,
Harsh

You could try the following:

RMAN> allocate channel for maintenance device type sbt
        parms 'SBT_LIBRARY=oracle.disksbt, ENV=(BACKUP_DIR=/tmp)';
RMAN> delete obsolete;
