Archiver hung

I need to switch the archive log destination as my archiver has just hung in one of my 10g DBs. The commands: alter system archivelog stop;
alter system archivelog start to 'new location';

don't work, What is the correct syntax for 10g?

Also, to get around this in the meantime I simply relinked the archive directory to a new destination. The trouble now is how do I backup the archived redo logs in the original location? RMAN is looking for them under this same archive directory but of course this is just a link.

Thanks,
Mike.

You should post your question under Oracle section not under any DB general question sections and I belive you would get an answer by yestarday.
Anyhow ARCHIVE LOG START has been deprecated in 10g

You should be able to change the parameter while the database is up and running with ALTER SYSTEM SET LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_1=......

It's a bit more urgent than that ... can you tell me how RMAN can backup archive logs if they're in a different location to the one  they were created in? ie. the link was changed but the location remained the same for the DB.

Can this even be done?
