I am doing an RMAN backup on RHEL 5 of my archivelogs every 10 minutes to keep the mount point from filling up.  

  crosscheck archivelog all;

  backup as compressed backupset archivelog all format='/oracle_backup_<Database>/rman/%U.arc' delete all input;

  delete noprompt obsolete;  

However, I'm getting an ORA-19502 when the database tries to write to the archivelogs that were just backed up.

Any idea why Oracle would be trying to write to an archivelog that RMAN has just backed up and deleted? I did a list backup of archivelog x and can see that it was indeed backed up.    

Thank you,
