    When some of archives are being deleted from disk and RMAN still consider those archives due to retention period. Then we can delete those archives from rman metadata using following command.

    RMAN>delete unavailable;

    If we are getting some specific archive related error or want to delete some specific archives from RMAN metadata then we can use following command for deleting it from rman metadata.
    RMAN>delete force archivelog SEQUENCE 18314 THREAD 1;
    RMAN>delete force archivelog SEQUENCE 18786 THREAD 2;

    Otherwise general option for deleting archives from RMAN metadata for those archives which are already obsolete.
