DELETE SCRIPT

Purpose

Use the DELETE SCRIPT command to delete a local or global stored script from the recovery catalog.

Prerequisites

Execute DELETE SCRIPT only at the RMAN prompt. RMAN must be connected to a recovery catalog and target database. The recovery catalog database must be open.

Usage Notes

A stored script may be local or global. A local script is created for the current target database only, whereas a global script is available for use with any database registered in the recovery catalog.

If GLOBAL is specified, then a global script with this name must exist in the recovery catalog; otherwise, RMAN returns error RMAN-06710. If you do not specify GLOBAL, then RMAN looks for a local stored script with the specified name defined on the current target database. If no such script is defined on the target database, then RMAN checks for a global stored script with this name and deletes it if it exists.

Semantics

Syntax Element Description
GLOBAL Identifies the script as global.

If you attempt to delete a global script, then RMAN must not be connected to a virtual private catalog. Virtual catalog users cannot modify global scripts, although they can execute them.

See Also: "Usage Notes" for an explanation of the difference between global and local scripts

SCRIPT script_name Specifies the name of the script to delete. Quotes must be used around the script name when the name contains either spaces or reserved words.
