Running RMAN online backup daily.  I have retention set to one day.  Currently i have a
DELETE NOPROMPT OBSOLETE at the end, but I would like to configure the script such that the backup pieces are deleted daily, but the archived logs are not.  I'd like to have logs deleted only every two or three days.  How do I do that?

It's been a while since I played with RMAN once I got my scripts set up but I believe you just need to set the archived redo log deletion policy.

They are not flagged as obsolete until the retention has been exceeded.
