Re: archive log deleted


No need to shut the database down, though this will do the trick.

1) Make sure there is sufficient space for the file, you may have run out of archive log space.

2) Any database checkpoint is sufficient to set up a restore point, along with a hot backup.

That being said, I'd go for a shutdown, full backup and database start. Cold backups are much easier to work with.

Re: archive log deleted

Hello DearFrog,

db dont need any recovery for archive logs...also for archive files deletion dont need any DB reboot..if for other cause you want to shut DB's then use shut immediate

archive logs are copy of the redo log files..if redo log deleted then we need recovery

archivelog is not must for database we can run the database in no archive mode also
archive files are not the part of the DB

startup will require recovery if we shutdown?
no recovery is needed.

recovery require only if datafiles,redo log files and control files deleted from databases

for archive no need..its just like backup redo log files thats All,
let me know if you have any other query,

shutdwon and then startup happened normally, and no restore/recovery was required.
