Sometimes you get so deep into something, you get all confused.
In the init.ora there is the parameter LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_1. This points to the destination where Oracle writes archived redo logs, correct? How is this different from the RMAN location:
backup archivelog all
delete all input;
Reason I am asking is: we have a process which looks into LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_1, and once or twice a day logs are disappearing from that location, causing the process to abort. So, somehow, Oracle must be managing what is in that location?
After running the RMAN command, does it move logs from LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_1 to the RMAN backup location, then remove them from LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_1?
