Can you do a restore preview and see whether the older archive logs (which

also do a crosscheck on archive log and see whether that fixes your problem
during your next backup run.
Now that you say that (and I've had the drive home to think about it), I
do this every quarter for my restore testing. So yes, what I had stated
is the way it works.
I'm not sure what a "crosscheck backup" would do, since the RMAN files
do reside on disk, but I did one anyway. A "crosscheck archivelog all"
would only look at the archive logs that haven't been backed up yet. In
either case, no change as a "report obsolete" still shows no archive log
backups as obsolete.
Thanks for the feedback!
