Hello,

We are planning to setup a data guard (Maximum performance configuration ) between two Oracle 9i databases on two different servers.

The archive logs on the primary servers are deleted via a RMAN job bases on a policy , just wondering how I should delete the archive logs that are shipped to the standby.

Is putting a cron job on the standby to delete archive logs that are say 2 days old the proper approach or is there a built in data guard option that would some how allow archive logs that are no longer needed or are two days old deleted automatically.

thanks,
C.

In the same way: use the same RMAN commands (assuming you use a RMAN catalog as both the primary and standby have the same id and so are seen as the same database from RMAN).
