Blocking the Software from Updating the Customized RMAN Script

When you perform a full or incremental backup on a subclient that has the table browse option enabled and the job is killed or fails, the software converts a subsequent incremental job to full. If you used a customized RMAN script for the incremental backup, the software adds  the "incremental=1" line to the script. If the previous job failed, the software automatically changes the line to “incremental level=0” to convert the job to a full backup.

Set sDISABLE_INRC_LEVEL_UPDATE to Y, to block the software from updating the RMAN script incremental level to 0 when the previous job failed in the archive index phase.

Note: The job controller shows the job as a full job even though it ran as an incremental job.
