I have a question on DB maintenance in suse manager 3.1

I have a location configured were the db is backed up to, but it's getting a little large. Can I just delete the old backups or it there a job somewhere that will keep only, say 60 days worth ?

Thanks

The smdba backup only does single backups. It's your responsibility to copy these backups away for long-term storage. Having at least one backup, less than a day old, is strongly recommended.

Archiving backups to a different machine as soon as a backup is finished is also considered best practice.
