RMAN Retention Policy with differential and cumulative backups (Doc ID 2118838.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 04, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 11.2.0.4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

We're configuring our backups to be weekly incremental level 0 and daily cumulative incremental level 1
For the retention policy we've been requested to:
- Keep previous two full (level 0) backups.
- Keep last cumulative incremental (level 1) for previous weeks full but not other inbetween backups
- Keep previous 3 days of cumulative incrementals (level 1)

Please can you advise if this would be possible by using the retention policy settings within rman (e.g. redundancy or recovery window)?
