If I issue

rman>report obsolete

I get a listing of around 100 old archivelogs that were backed up 4 years ago and no longer exist. I have tried to delete obsolete, but I get an error saying there is a mismatch and to crosscheck to fix the issue.

I run a crosscheck on backup, backupset, archivelog all and still doesn't work when I try to delete obsolete.

I issued a
crosscheck backuppiece 1805, 1806;
delete expired;
and it works.

now how can i get around listing out each individual backuppiece number? Received on Wed Feb 20 2008 - 13:52:09 CST
