Can not allocate log, archival required
Posted on 2001-08-21
Oracle 188.8.131.52/Windows 2000 Server/2 CPU
A week ago I switched my database to ARCHIVELOG mode. I made directory c:\backup and told Oracle to write the archived redo logs there. For a week I've collected about 1.5 GB redo logs. And suddenly (about 09:00 AM) today a message appeared:
| Warning - The following error occured during ORACLE redo log archival: |
ORACLE Instance stemoco - Can not allocate log, archival required
| Press <ENTER> to acknowledge message. |
And the instance halted. After restart it become working again, for an hour, and then - ppof! Again the same message. The message has no error code, the search in Oracle docs gave nothing. The redo logs are successfully archived until 08:21 AM (today). The online redo log files are dated as the last restart of the server. I switched back to NOARCHIVELOG, so I hope the DB will work today. But that's not a solution.
I have 20 GB free on c:. No permitions are changed - it fully read/writeable.
If someone has any idea what is this all about, please give me a suggestion.
