So I have an Oracle database (standalone) running in RHEL and I have scheduled RMAN for backups on daily and weekly basis. Sometimes my file system (archive mount-point) becomes full because of high archive generation. Now what is the right way to delete the archives from the file system?
My RMAN script has this
delete archivelog all completed before 'SYSDATE-5'
but the above command isnt deleteing the archives properly as I see, some of the very old archives are still there..
How to delete them properly?
Should I run crosscheck archivelog all? and then run the above command once again? What is the right way?
