    Defer log shipping and RMAN-08137 message when doing archivelog backup




      in a Primary & Dataguard scenario in which we set to DEFER the log shipping to the Dataguard during a high impact process done in the Primary, we receive the message "RMAN-08137: WARNING: archive log not deleted as it is still needed" when doing archive log backup with rman.


      Is it the expected behaviour due to the DEFER status with the Dataguard? or even in this scenario  we might we able to delete the logs and therefore we have to look more in deep to find our problem?


      Thanks in advance for your help.
