Hai All,


I want to delete the RMAN backup using script.Oracle Version is 8.1.7.4. Solaris 5.8 Os.DB Backup is using RMAN.Bkup policy is as follows.(thru cron)

Incremental level 1 backup on mon-saturday
Incremental level 0 on sunday.

Backup information is stored in catalog schema which is in target database(Same DB).

Now my doubt is how to set configuration parameter in 8.1.7.4
If I give the command as "show all" it is throwing the RMAN-00569: = ERROR MESSAGE STACK FOLLOWS == line.
I can able to delete the backup using change backuppiece <piecenumber> delete by allocating a maintenance channel;
But I want to delete the backup using script.

Any command is available to delete .
I tried this script , but no luck.

connect catalog $RMAN/$RMANPWD
connect target
allocate channel for maintenance type disk;
run
{
delete noprompt backup of database completed before 'sysdate-7';
release channel;
}

Can any body help me in this please

Thanks in advance
Jay

>> Backup information is stored in catalog schema which is in target database(Same DB).
Cannot be any worse. If you loose the target database, you also loose the recovery catalog.


Always post what you did and post the displayed error message exactly. Verbatim.
Explaining what you did helps less.
This section of documentation talks about some techniques. Please see whether it helps.

If nothing works,
You can directly update the catalog stating these backups would become unvailable and
remove those backupsets in OS manually.

cron -e will let you edit cron's tasks. You must be logged in as the user that put the task into cron.
