RMAN Pet Peeves

Do you validate your backup and what command do you use?

Lately, I have been using restore database validate preview summary to kill 2 birds with 1 stone.

The issue is RMAN will skip validation of archived log backupset when archived log exists.

Does this seem wrong to you?

Please take a look at a test case here

What do you think?
