We are doing it the same here, BUT: After the backup finished we do 'sql archive log current'; and then again a backup of all archive logs 'backup (archivelog all ....)' so we have a backup of all the files needed for restore. Adar Yechiel Rechovot, Israel Sweetser, Joe wrote:
Hi all - I inherited an RMAN environment and discovered something doing test restores to a different server that I would like to bounce off those smarter than I. The current backups do a "backup database", "crosscheck archivelog all", and then a "backup archivelog until time 'SYSDATE' delete input". This runs every night with no other backups.
