    Rollforward image copies and retension - explanation needed .

    698658
      Hi,
      I'm trying to understand how rman deals with such script
      recover copy of database with tag DB_BACKUP 
      until time 'sysdate-8'; 
      backup incremental level 1 for recover of 
      copy with tag DB BACKUP database;
      How old my image copy is in such scenario ?
      What if I do switch database to copy ?
      How much recovery is needed if I want switch to copy at day 7 .
      Regards

          sysdate-8 after recover

          you will need to recover database
          How much recovery is needed if I want switch to copy at day 7 .
