Options
-set setName
Name of the backup set to be deleted. Deleting a backup set deletes all of the backup events in it.
-procfiles programName
Executes the shell script or program programName before deleting the backup volume. programName can contain a full or relative path.
During the execution of oodeleteset, the name of the file about to be deleted is passed to the script as a command-line argument. If the script exits with a nonzero status, oodeleteset reports an error, but continues processing.
-standalone
Nonconcurrent mode. Use this option if no lock server is running or to bypass a running lock server.
Warning: Corruption can occur if concurrent access to the federated database is attempted while any process is using this mode.
-notitle
Suppresses the copyright notice and program title banner. Useful when invoking the tool from another tool or product.
-quiet
Suppresses all normal program output.
-help
Prints the tool syntax and definition to the screen.
bootFilePath
Path to the boot file of the federated database. You can omit this argument if you set the OO_FD_BOOT environment variable to the correct path. (HA) You can specify the boot file of any autonomous partition.
Discussion
To delete a basic backup (a backup taken with options such as -full, -incremental, -subincremental, or -destination), you must first use the ooqueryset tool to find the name of the backup set that was implicitly created for the backup you want to delete. You then use the -set option to specify this backup set name to oodeleteset.
