You are correct. However, I don't know how to add it because it located under the GRID_HOME. Do I add an entry within the $GRID_HOME/network/admin/listener.ora file?
And I email the backup log to myself daily and review for issues.
delete noprompt ARCHIVELOG UNTIL TIME 'SYSDATE-3';
2) As well, if we want to turn off dataguard for a little while and then start it up again can we do that? (The client don't get live for a month now) Would we just disable the configuration in DGMGRL and unset the archive destination (like I did in removing the Data Guard Broker)? If so, when the data guard is turned back on will it work automatically? or woudl we have to start the apply of logs?
in a Data Guard environment, it is not recommended to use BACKUP... DELETE INPUT to delete archived logs, as RMAN cannot delete the logs generated on another node. A separate DELETE command with a BACKED UP n TIMES TO DEVICE TYPE SBT command provides more direct control over deleting logs in this environment.
