There was some kind of hardware problem where the NAS switch failed.  This was resolved, but when the standby was brought up again i'm getting these messages in the alert_log of primary.

    Looks like you may have remote archiving enabled on the Standby database, disable it using, for example:

    alter system set log_archive_dest_3 = ' '
    Note:  You'll need to determine which 'log_archive_dest_#' location is enabled for remote archiving, the Standby should only be archiving to the local disks.

    Thanks.  I saw something like that on google and i'm 100% certain that will work.  If that was correct, and i need only change that parameter on standby, that would be much better.  Right now i'm waiting on Oracle.
    Seems like years later and they still may be '... stuck on this one'. I should have followed that post.
    As I recall, i set the parameter that way for failover capability or whatever so that the standby, acting as primary, could send archives to whatever was acting as standby.

    So far all Oracle is saying is '.... thank you for sending...please send again'. :-)
