Is this script is enough to delete the backup pieces older than 2 days.

CONFIGURE RETENTION POLICY TO RECOVERY WINDOW OF 2 DAYS;
configure device type disk parallelism 1 backup type to compressed backupset;

run
{
allocate channel d1 type disk ;
backup filesperset 5 format '/u06/backup/EBSDEV/EBSDEV_data_t%t_s%s_p%p' database ;
sql 'alter system archive log current' ;
backup filesperset 20 format '/u06/backup/EBSDV3/EBSDV3_arch_t%t_s%s_p%p' archivelog all delete input ;
backup format '/u06/backup/EBSDEV/EBSDEV_control%U' current controlfile ;
backup spfile format '/u06/backup/EBSDEV/EBSDEV_spfile_%U';
sql "alter database backup controlfile to trace as ''/tmp/control.trc'' reuse";

CROSSCHECK BACKUP;
DELETE NOPROMPT OBSOLETE;
DELETE NOPROMPT EXPIRED BACKUP;
}
list backupset summary;
exit;

Thanks in Advance

depends how often you run it Smile
You might want to use DELETE ALL INPUT, not just DELETE INPUT, or you may have archivelog copies hanging around.
