Error description

  • If NUM_DB_BACKUPS DB config parameter is configured, the
    backup entries within NUM_DB_BACKUPS value may be unexpectedly
    retained in the Recovery History File after "prune history
    TIMESTAMP and delete" command is issues even if the timestamp of
    the backup entries are older than one on the "prune history"
    command.
    
      Then the older archive log files may not be pruned which are
    within the range of the retained backup object entries.
    

Local fix

  • "WITH FORCE OPTION" option usage on the "prune history"
    command is a option of the work around.
