Re: Archive mode

This was posted awhile ago. Search the archives for additional information.



archiving-------
1. The init.ora parameter log_archive_start is to start the   archiver process(es) when the database starts.

2. 'alter database archivelog' puts the database in archive log mode.

3. 'alter system archive log start' starts automatic archiving.

'Oracle Backup and Recovery Handbook' states that either of 1 or 3 is necessary.

Let's backup a minute... To start automatic archiving you need to either: 1) change the init.ora parm and restart the database; or 2) issue "archive log start" from svrmgrl. You can have archiving started but not have the database in archivelog mode. See the below listing:



SVRMGR> archive log start
Statement processed.
SVRMGR> archive log list
Database log mode              No Archive Mode
Automatic archival             Enabled
Archive destination            /u01/oracle/product/8.1.6/dbs/arch
Oldest online log sequence     2140
Current log sequence           2142

SVRMGR>

But to implement archiving you need to shutdown the database, startup mount, alter database archivelog, archive log start, alter database open, then do an "archive log list" to make sure both the database is in log mode AND automatic archiving is enabled.
