RE: rman nocatalog - required maintenance on the control file

Does the setting of this parameter mean that records older than
the specified number of days are deleted automatically or that they
are candidates for reuse?  The manual is a bit vague on this point.

In any event, CONTROL_FILE_RECORD_KEEP_TIME is set to 7 (days) on 
the database I am working with.  The rman list backup command, however,
shows backups going back to July 8 which was when I first began
working with rman.

Thanks,
Peter Schauss

   Take a look at the init.ora parameter CONTROL_FILE_RECORD_KEEP_TIME.

I am preparing to use rman in nocatalog mode for my daily backups.
I know that the control file will record information about the backups
which I have done.  Should I plan to purge information about
old backups from the control files at regular intervals?

Thanks,
Peter Schauss
