I think you have a serious mis-understanding about stopping the archiving. You are only stopping the ARCHIVER when you try to do it!!! It means that you will need to manually archive the online redo log yourself. It does not CHANGE YOUR DATABASE TO NOARCHIVE LOG DURING THAT TIME!!! If you want to change it to noarchive log, you should do a mount of the database and then issue alert database noarchivelog!

But once you change it to noarchive log. You may mess up with all your previous backup and you can no longer roll forward with the archive log that you used to have.

Why don't you just look into the nologging option, unrecoverable option in load?

Subject: Stopped Archiving!


I have a table in which i have to load 15 mill rows. So before start loading the data i disable the archiving in order to avoid all the space taken by the archive files. But when i run the loader i got the folloing error & when i truned archiving back on, i was able to load the data.


Any input will be appreciated.
