Delete archivelog until time

Many, but many times people have problems with the archive logs. And call our team to save you…. The FRA is full.

So… we discovered that they did not take policies and controls about the databases when they have 100 o more databases to admin.

Here… the script to clean… but remember… this is not the solution.

The solution is planning and automatization. Happy delete!
