RMAN> configure retention policy to recovery window of 7 days;

RMAN-03002: failure of configure command at 11/27/2008 09:41:02 RMAN-05021: this configuration cannot be changed for a BACKUP or STANDBY control file

anyway around this? I have space issues. I guess I can just rm/crosscheck/delete, but I'd rather a "clean" fix.

I'm thankful I can ask this question here :)
