We have a Broker managed configuration with one physical standby in Max Availability mode. 184.108.40.206.8 on Redhat 6.3.
I have set the RMAN property 'CONFIGURE ARCHIVELOG DELETION POLICY TO APPLIED ON STANDBY' on both the primary & standby databases.
On the standby database the archived logs are not being deleted. They accumulate in the location specified by LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST1_1 and the disk group fills up.
We are not storing the archived log in the Flash Recovery Area (FRA).
Am I correct in saying that the 'APPLIED ON STANDBY' configuration parameter only deletes archived logs automatically if the archived logs are stored in the FRA? i.e. The location specified by db_recovery_file_dest.
