yes, Oracle wants to preserve the log file. I am on Two weeks ago I set diagwait to 13 and still had a server reboot because of oprocd, so Oracle support suggested I set it to 23, which I did on Friday.

I presume you are looking into this because the oprocd logfile is getting deleted when oprocd is rebooting the box    

  What version of CRS are you on and what bundle patch/MLR level

  What are the values for the margin and timeout for oprocd. You can find the same by doing a ps -ef | grep oproc

        Oracle Support wants me to rename the oprocd.lgl file right before the crs starts up, but they won't tell me how to do this. I am running on RHEL3.   I would expect something like this would work:    

  cp /etc/oracle/oprocd/oprocd.lgl /etc/oracle/oprocd/oprocd.lgl_`date +"%Y%m%d"`    

  But I am not sure where to put this. If I put it in, won't it run when the crs is shutdown also? Can someone recommend a better place for it?
