I'm starting the migration of my Oracle database backups from NetBackup to Commvault and have a quuestion. In NetBackup, I had configured the backup script to only delete archivelog files that are older than 21 days. Since I don't need that many backups of the each log file, I had configure my backup script to only back up each file 3 times. This was done via the following code:
filesperset=1 format '%d_al%e_%T_%s'
archivelog all not backed up 3 times;
delete noprompt copy of archivelog all completed before 'SYSDATE-21';
The only place I see this corresponding option in Commvault is when I run a manual backup and click on the Advanced tab and change the behaviour for that one backup. As far as I can see the normal scheduled subclient backup can either not delete any archivelog files or delete them all.
I have two questions:
1) Is the typical administrator configuring Oracle database backups to delete the archivelog files every time a backup is run?
2) Is there a way to configure the subclient to only backup log files not already backed up 3 times and only delete logs that are older than 21 days?
Thanks in advance for your help.
