    Oracle VSS based backup

      I have implemented VSS requester which successfully performs backups against various writers (MS Exchange, MS SQL Server, etc). This requester also performs successful FULL and Incremental backups against Oracle Writer, but there is a problem: Oracle DB is not aware of performed backup - so there is no archivelog deletion. Also, from RMAN if executed LIST BACKUP OF ARCHIVELOG ALL; there is no any archivelog listed as result.
      So if VSS backup is used, eventually archivelogs will exhaust its space since they will never be eligible for any kind of deletion policy.
