Slight quibble. There are configurations beginning with 6.0.36 or so where you want archivelog mode but want to wait to start archiving manually after the CPU load of instance startup and "instance recovery" is complete. One reason is simply horsepower allocation, but that is probably splitting hairs. Another reason is if you alternate archivelog destinations to fill devices that are then duplicated while no one is using them for anything else at all, then instead of updating the parameter for the archivelog destination, you want to use something to ask the OS which destination to use in conjunction with a manual archive log start command.  

So I never thought it was goofy, except that I thought it was goofy to have it be true if you were in noarchivelog mode.

You just don't need it. It was always a goofy param. If your database was in archivelog mode, then you *wanted* this to be true. And if your database was *not* in archivelog mode, then this param was worthless!

So we converted a 9i db to 10g and got log)archive_start=true as a depreciated parameter. Do I just not need it or is there a replacement parm?
