    RETENTION POLICY and incremental backups.

    just a DBA

      Consider the following scenario.


      Sunday : level 0
      Monday : level 1
      Tuesday : level 1
      Wednesday : level 1 cumulative


      If we perform recovery on Friday, rman will use level 0, last level 1 and all logs after it. All other logs and incremental backups are not needed.

      Now suppose that retention policy is recovery window of 1 or 2 days. Will rman consider those logs and backups as obsolete on friday?
