Hi Experts,
I am doing bulk upload on production database.But my archive
destination is getting full.I gunzipped all the files but 
still disk is 95% full.There is space on other disks on OS
So If I change the archive destination and point it to
other disk.Can it create any issues.

Regards,
Varun Punj,

You might wish to run bulk upload in nologging mode in order to avoid excessive redo generation and thus archived redo.

There is no problem to compressyour archived log files, you just have to uncompress them if you have to recover your database.

Note that you can configure your archive log destinations to automatically switch to another destination when a threshold is exceeded.

Hi Michel,
Thanks for the reply.I have some more question:-
I have total 5 disks available at O.S.Currently i reduced the 
the size capacity of the disk containing archivelogs to 75% after deleting and compressing some system generated trace files.
On the other disks datafiles are residing.So in future 
Should I add more space to the disk containg archive destination
or should I point archive destination to other disk which has
empty space but contain datafiles.
Can you also please tell me how I  can configure my
 archive log destinations to automatically switch to another destination when a threshold is exceeded

Regards,
Varun Punj,

Only you knows exactly what you have and what you can't have.

LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_n and LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_STATE_n
Have a look at QUOTA_SIZE, QUOTA_USED and ALTERNATE options.

We are baking up archive logs by veritas netbackup everyday.
Now as we added 100gb more space at archive destination
I would configure RMAN to take archive backups too.
Right now RMAN is taking disk backup of full disk level
backup everyday at defined channel.Is there any way I could keep
backup archivelogs for seven days
and delete the obsolete backup set everyday with
redundancy of 1.
