Hi Gurus,

So, I use RMAN script for full database backup (goes every Friday) and script for backup archivelog files (goes every day).

The scripts looks like:

connect target system/passwd
allocate channel db_fullback_disk1 type disk
format '/backup/rmanbackup/%U';
backup database;
release channel db_fullback_disk1;
restore database validate;
delete noprompt obsolete;
host 'cp /opt/oracle/9.2.0/network/admin/listener.ora /backup/rmanbackup';
host 'cp /opt/oracle/9.2.0/network/admin/tnsnames.ora /backup/rmanbackup';
host 'cp /opt/oracle/9.2.0/dbs/orapwsid /backup/rmanbackup';

connect target system/passwd
allocate channel arch_backup_disk1 type disk
format '/backup/rmanbackup/logarch/%U';
backup archivelog all not backed up 2 times;
delete archivelog until time ' sysdate -7' backed up 2 times to device type disk;
release channel arch_backup_disk1;

But every friday the full backup script delete all archivelog files wich are obsolete and I would like to avoid that. I would like to keep all archivelog file for every case as long as I have enough space.

I didn't mention that my retention policy is set to 2;

So if somebody has some idea please let me know.

THANX in advance

With this statement
>>delete noprompt obsolete;
The behaviour is quit expected. Remove it.
