While RMAN full backup, today i have encountered “RMAN-06059: expected archived log not found, loss of archived log compromises recoverability”

RMAN error.
Solution for the mentioned error is to Crosscheck your archive logs from RMAN prompt and delete those expired logs who are not needed anymore.

While crosscheck archivelogs, RMAN will marked archives as Expired in his repository (i.e. controlfile or catalog) those who are not physically present there. So we can easily delete expired archives from controlfile or catalog repository.

Cause:

This can happen for a variety of reasons; the file has been manually moved or deleted,
the archive log destination has recently been changed,
the file has been compressed, etc

Solution:

Your options are either to restore the missing file(s), or to perform a crosscheck.
To perform a crosscheck, run the following command from within RMAN:

RMAN> CROSSCHECK ARCHIVELOG ALL;

Above command will give information of expired RMAN repository after verification. (i.e. in catalog or controlfile)

Above will marked archives as Expired who are not available physically and who are not required for any kind of recovery.

RMAN> DELETE EXPIRED ARCHIVELOG ALL;

Above command will delete all archive logs who are marked as expired while crosscheck.

Details :

What? When using RMAN to backup archivelog files, an error “RMAN-06059: Errror identifying file ” is returned. Prior to this the backups have been running successfully.

RMAN-03002: failure of backup plus archivelog command
RMAN-06059: expected archived log not found, lost of archived log compromises recoverability
RMAN-6059: expected archived log not found, lost of archived log compromises recoverability
ORA-19625 “error identifying file %s”

Why? Oracle is trying to backup an archivelog and is expecting for it to be available as it could be required for recovery.

Cause: The archive log is no longer accessible. One of the common reasons is that the archive log has been removed manually to free up space on the system or the permissions on the file was changed.

Resolution: The most important thing is to determine what caused the file to not be available.

Then to get around this error, to allow RMAN to continue backing up the database first connect to the RMAN repository. The run the “CROSSCHECK ARCHIVELOG ALL”.

RMAN will continue to backup the rest of the archivelogs.

Caution: Ensure that you also take a full backup since one f the archivelogs is not available in the backupsets and will limit your ability to do a complete recovery without it.
