While trying to Delete the Archive logs at the Physical Standby, getting Errors

 RMAN-8137: WARNING: archived log not deleted, needed for standby or upstream capture process
Getting this RMAN-8137 while trying to delete the Archive logs which was generated  when the Physical Standby DB role was set to Snapshot Standby


Steps Done:

- Create physical Standby with DB_RECOVERY_FILE_DEST
- Convert to Snapshot
SQL> alter database convert to snapshot standby;
- Restart and preform log switches
- Convert it back to the Physical Standby
SQL> alter database convert to physical standby;

- Run RMAN> backup archivelog all delete input;
-> This will delete the archives which are applied on the physical but will report an RMAN-8137 on the archives related to the Snapshot
