i am trying to find out whether i can automatically transfer my archived redologs off to another, remote server, at the same time that they get archived to a local filesystem (log_archive_dest_1 & log_archive_dest_2) ??
i don't want them to go to a standby (yet) - i just want them to go across to another box for storage, in case we need them for a recovery.
i've tried setting it up using "archive_dest_2='SERVICE....." but it tells me the remote location is not a standby database (which is true) and everything on metalink is related to standby/dataguard.
if anyone has any ideas, i'd be eternally grateful for their input.
The parameters are the same, but the drive syntax is different. Change m:\arclogs to /remotearclogs, or whatever you named your pointer to the remote drive. Oracle does not support datafiles over UFS shares, but it should work fine for arclogs.
