I used 'delete input' to delete all the archives backed up.
I am storing archives in dest1 and dest2...i.e, in two locatiions in production.
Although archive in dest1 is getting deleted I am unable to delete those in dest2.Please help to delete archives in dest2 too.
Anyway, in addition to the command Balazs showed, which can be used after the fact, you can also
backup archivelog delete ALL input;
Probably there is missing one "all" in your command :
