Ok, I ran the 3 commands to delete and they ran fine. But when I run the REPORT OBSOLETE command, it still lists a whole mess of stuff. So I ran DELETE OBSOLETE, and this failed. The error said: "no channel allocated for maintenance (of an appropriate type)". Could this be because it is trying to delete some of the BackupExec jobs? I see jobs listed in the report that have "BE_" in the front of the name. The report is still showing the "+FLASH" datafile copes also. Thanks

I've been in meetings all day, so I havent had a chance to look it up. I'll see if I can fix it later. I would much rather be learning more Oracle!

Apologies again as i dont have a database to test my commands at the moment
Here is what you need to do
allocate channel for maintenance device type disk ;
delete noprompt obsolete

I'm still getting a failure for the Delete Obsolete command. The other 2 worked, but when I run the delete it still says no cahannel allocated for maiintenance(of an appropriate type). I don't get that, it allocates the disk ok. Any thoughts?

allocate channel device type sbt;
delete force obsolete;

Hey thay worked! deleated a whole bunch of obsolete archive logs. Great! Thanks! Deleted 899 objects. I noticed it deleted the stuff on the +FLASH and some of the stuff from BE. HOw come allocating the SBT worked and not the disk?

Did the folks before you leave some documentation behind ?
It worked because sbt channel was used earlier to make copies etc.You need to look at the earlier docs and all what those people gave you before you were there.
Can you please run the oracle reccommended backup strategy and then let us know if you are still hitting that error for which you started this thread
