I am working with rman for the last couple of months. And i have some knowledge with this. As i am going to do some task in prod db, i have some confusing which i am going to ask here.


1.My db version is and  COMPRESSION ALGORITHM 'BZIP2'. Can i use compress backup by issuing rman command like "backup as compressed backupset  format ..." ??


2.When I issued report obsolete, the output showed several controlfile copy and backup sets. If i delete obsolete , is there any chance that will delete any important file will cause the database a problem??

In one delete obsolete is safe in any situation??
