If CONFIGURE ARCHIVELOG DELETION POLICY TO APPLIED ON ALL STANDBY
and then backing up archived logs with option NOT BACKED UP <n> TIMES DELETE INPUT is executed from Primary,
archived logs which have been backed up and not yet APPLIED on Standby are incorrectly deleted.

RMAN> backup archivelog all not backed up 1 times delete input;
RMAN-8071: channel ORA_DISK_1: deleting archived log(s)

SEQUENCE# THREAD# CREATOR ARCHIVED APPLIED DELETED STATUS
1621 1 ARCH YES NO YES D
