    Exact  function about this RMAN  statement

    sandy121
      What does the statement 'BACKUP VALIDATE CHECK LOGICAL DATABASE ' in RMAN internally performs? As per docs at http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/backup.112/e10642/rcmvalid.htm#BRADV89562, it checks for logical corruptions in addition to physical corruption. Now my query is - does it also clearly indicates successful completion of last RMAN backup also as I have seen in past in status 'completed ' in dynamic performance view 'v$rman_status' , but to my utter surprise, backup pieces are not there physically in backup location.
      Any inputs/advices will be highly appreciated.
