dataguard, and rman backup of archive logs
Date: Tue, 2 Feb 2010 13:27:20 -0500
I have a rac cluster, with dataguard replicating to a logical standby, as well as a physical standby. All environments are using ASM.
I use RMAN to back up the archive logs on the LSB. The LSB is a set up to delete the archive logs once they are backed up. When I check the alert log, it shows the archive logs being deleted. When I check the archive log location on ASM, the archive logs still remains.
They way ASM is set up is has a soft link to the actual archive log files in the archive log directory. Here is an example.
So, when Oracle deletes the archive log, it just removes the link
In this case, that would be "srptpre_dcea562_1_919_702560930.arc". The actual archive log file,
"+REM_ARCH/srptpre/ARCHIVELOG/2010_02_02/thread_1_seq_919.670.709896975" still remains. It does not get deleted.
Has anyone seen this sort of behavior ? Is there a way to have the archive log deleted also ?
Sun solaris 10, oracle 10.2.0.4.
