How about consulting the Recovery Manager User’s Guide (A96566-01):
RMAN Concepts I: Channels, Backups, and Copies Backup Retention Policies Backups Exempt from the Retention Policy
Inessa Weiner wrote:
We are backing up our database (Oracle 9i) using RMAN - level 0 backup on Saturday night, incremental level 1 - Sunday to Friday.
We would like to retain all backups for 3 month, so we configured RMAN to retain backups:
configure retention policy to recovery window of 90 days;
I also need to keep level 0 copy from the first Saturday of the month up to three years.
Could you please help me on this ?
