    Unanswered: Oracle Archive Logs

    Hi, I am setting up Oracle Archive Logging. When I set the path for the LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST in the init.ora file my instance still archives in the Oracle home directory. For some reason it will not read the path in the init.ora file. I am able to manually set the path by using 'alter system set log_archive_dest = "new path"' and it works, but I don't want to do this each time the db is restared.

    Does anyone have any idea why it won't read this from the init.ora file? I am using Oracle 9i on Win2k. I am altering the correct init.ora file and I have restarted the database after making the change. When I type in sho parameter archive_dest it is blank until I set it manually. Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks much - George

    My 1st guess is that Oracle is using spfile & ignoring your pfile.
    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.
    The average person thinks he's above average!
    For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.
    Good judgement comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgement.
