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.
