Call all Rman Gurus, :)
Has anybody worked with "optional" archivelog mount point and RMAN arc removal process?
When RMAN goes to remove old arclogs… it will choke if it cannot find the arclogs to delete.
I have here another script removing the "optional" arclogs..which RMAN does not know about…
My question is: will Rman know not to fail if the archivelog which are designated as optional are missing…?
Normally it would…error like this if it cannot find the archlog if it was manditory.
