Got this error message when trying to do a full rman backup in archivelog mode of a migration database… big DB I’m taking in and out of archivelog mode all the time.  Put it in archivelog mode to get a “gold” backup, out of archivelog mode to run the migration test – it’s faster that way.

RMAN-06059 / ORA-19625 / ORA-27037 While trying to do an rman backup

What is the fix?

Well it can’t find some archivelog that rman is expecting.  One way to fix the issue, if the archivelog really is gone or deleted, is to tell rman it’s been deleted like this:

rman target /

crosscheck archivelog all;

delete expired archivelog;
