Automatic backup feature does not respect NUM_DB_BACKUPS.

Technote (FAQ)


Question

Automatic backup feature does not respect the NUM_DB_BACKUPS database configugration parameter. This would be problem only if the you have given the database backup directory location in automatic maintenance wizard or automatic backup policy file (policy.xml), as the one used for manual backup. The automatic backup is designed such a way that it should clean up all , except the most recent one. So it is recommended to use separate directory for automatic backup which should not used to keep other backup copies.
