This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hi all,

I am lookup for another (better) solution where archive log backup retention in Netbackup will preserve against RMAN obsolete delete.   Actually we run any script frequently where we do change retention for critical Oracle images to infinity. Next solution is using WORM medium as preserve against rewriting critical data after expiration :-) .

Hi,

Backup to tape doesn't solve problem if rewritable medium are used. If any administrator of Oracle run obsolete delete in rman script it cause that images of Oracle backup are marked as unprotected and images on tape should be rewritable. 

I am lookup for any way of protect against randomly mistake of any administrator of DBA. So, we have no stupid administrators :-), but the customer asked us for possible solution.
