Hi All,


today i saw in one enviroment with the following setup:


Each Oracle Server has 3 Subclients: Archivelog, Default, Selective and the jobs goes to 


1 Disk Library

2 Sync Tape

3 Selective Tape


We had oracle Subclients which takes Daily Full and hourly archive log backup and monthly selective. 


I Checked the jobs in the Selective Tape Copy and i find for each month double Jobs. The normal daily full was written to the selective copy and also the selective copy was written.


Is this normal ? Becasue than we did not need the selöective subclient any more. 


My standig was that only selctive db backups can copy to the selective copy.

Hi @SSchmidt .  The Selective should only have Selective Online Full backups (or File System Backups).

Are these jobs literally there twice (same ID)?  Is one the log and one the data?
