Typical - I go on holiday for day and somebody generates an abnormal load of archived logs.
They filled up the disk, moved the wrong files then moved the right files - did a reboot and hey presto
although the DB comes up fine I discover that an archived log is missing.Thats my standby trashed!
 Assuming the non use the rm command anyone got an idea how it happened? OS Redhat Linux DB Version 10g
