When using RMAN for backups, you can automate the deletion of backups that are no longer needed using a single command. In this video, learn about how you can use the DELETE BACKUP and DELETE BACKUPSET commands to delete RMAN backups as part of RMAN backup management.
- [Instructor] Another aspect of RMAN Backup Management…is that RMAN provides us with the capabilities…to manually delete backup sets as we see fit.…Remember that if you delete RMAN backups directly…on the OS or operating system level,…such as using the Linux RM command,…this will cause a discrepancy…between the backups that RMAN think that exist…and the backup files that actually do exist,…which is not ideal.…
It's better to use RMAN's own interface…when deleting backups, even manually.…Using RMAN commands,…we can instruct RMAN to delete a specific backup set…of a specific database.…Let's start by opening a RMAN prompt…to our target database.…So, we'll type RMAN target equals…and backslash.…Let's list any backups of the ORCL database,…which we have taken.…
So, list…backup…of…database…orcl.…And let's manually…instruct RMAN…to delete backup set 122,…which we can see is a full database backup…and is almost 1.4…gigabytes in size.…So, we'll type, delete…no prompt…backup set…and type the backup set number,…so 122, in my case.…
