After 12.2.0.1 upgrade RMAN is not cleaning up old backups even with patch 25943271 installed (Doc ID 2409570.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 04, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 12.2.0.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Recently we upgraded one of our 11.2.0.4 environments to 12.2.0.1, now RMAN is not cleaning up controlfile+spfile autobackups.  We cannot remove these files without using FORCE option and RMAN will not consider them obsolete.
