Last updated on NOVEMBER 16, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle GoldenGate - Version 12.1.2.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

 RMAN does not retain the archivelogs required by the IE process.  The archivelogs could get purged even if they are not read by the IE process. This happens when  OGG 12.1 and above is used along with deletion policy is set to NONE.

CONFIGURE ARCHIVELOG DELETION POLICY TO NONE;

In Earlier versions, OGG would not allow to delete the archivelog by giving the below warning.

RMAN-08137: WARNING: archived log not deleted, needed for standby or upstream capture process
