We have a requirement to physically remove rman backup files that rman no longer knows about. We know what directory the files will be in, so I need a script that will identify those files and delete them. Two questions: First, Will the rman 'catalog' command catalog rman files that dont belong to the current database (I am pretty sure the answer is no to that, but I haven't tried it). Second, has anyone written a script that will compare file names that rman knows about with the files in a directory? The idea here is that after the catalog command and the delete obsolete and delete unneeded backup, any rman files that rman does not know about can be deleted. -- Andrew W.
