The Oracle agent automatically backs up the database tablespace data files and the database control file along with all the Oracle archived log files when a full backup is performed. Backup Exec will not delete archive redo log files after the backup operation.
In regards to Arhivelog the Oracle database must be set to ARCHIVELOG mode. This is so the Oracle agent can put each tablespace in Backup mode prior to running the Backup operation.
For more information and/or recommendations for managing archive redo log files in a specific environment, see Oracle documentation or contact Oracle support.
