Archive log deletion on primary site failing with the below error.
RMAN-08137: WARNING: archived log not deleted, needed for standby or upstream capture process
Primary database has two dataguard databases, a physical standby and a snapshot standby.
The physical standby database is in sync and snapshot database is receiving the archive logs.
Patch for <<Bug:17156876>> was applied but did not resolved issue as this bug is for archivelog files generated when converting a snapshot standby.
Issue comes when standby 2 is converted to snapshot and Switchover is performed between primary and physical standby 1 database.
Issue is resolved once snapshot DB is converted to physical standby, archive starts getting deleted.
