    Unanswered: Overriding an RMAN backup set/piece

    Hi DBA's,

    I do take cold backups of my database (96G) using RMAN (to disk). My configuration parameter for disk storage is as follows:

    CONFIGURE DEFAULT DEVICE TYPE TO DISK; # default
    CONFIGURE CHANNEL DEVICE TYPE DISK FORMAT $ORACLE_BASE/backup/db_name/%U';

    This configuration creates a backup set with 3 pieces. Now, i need to set the configuration such that every time a backup is taken, it should override the present set/pieces & replace them with a new set/pieces, such that the old set/pieces would be automatically deleted.

    Is there the possibility of doing this?

    Please help...
    Regards,

    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.
    The average person thinks he's above average!
    For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.
    Good judgement comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgement.
