Oracle 9i Rman Recovery Catalog cleanup
If I issue the the commands listed below to remove backupsets that have been deleted from disk and is no longer needed in the Recovery Catalog, will the system remove the backupsets from the catalog or will the system mark the backupsets with a status of "DELETE" and then I will have to run prgrmanc.sql to remove from the catalog.
RMAN> allocate channel for delete type disk;
2> delete noprompt force backup of database completed before '01-OCT-2006';
3> delete expired backup of archivelog until time '01-OCT-2006';
4> release channel;
5> print database;
Also Please explain the process?
