You need to copy the archive logs to the remote location. Even if you have backup of the archive logs first you need to restore the backup and then your recovery will identify your archive logs. Yes if you copy your archive logs to the destination, they will be recognized in the recovery as the information for what archive is to be used will be used from the controlfile.
Does Rman apply archive logs even if they are not backed up but copied to the remote host ?
It depends on the settings for archive log destination and archive log format on the auxiliary side if rman can apply your archive logs.
(I normaly use rman to backup the archive logs and use copy the pieces to the auxliary. During the recovery phase of the cloning process the archive files get restored to the auxiliary archivelog dest and get the format as set in the (s)pfile on the auxiliary.)
I will try this tommorrow,but to my understandment this is true ?
If i copied backups and current archivelogs without backing them up to the remote Host with same stracture and format they will be recognized by RMAN during duriing the recover process, i do this because i do not want to to run backup prcocedure and i want the auxiliary to be up to the time of duplication .
