Our test database is running in archivelog mode, which occupies a lot of space and we are running short of space very often.
I want to change the database from archivelog mode to noarchivelog mode in Oracle 10g.
Appreciate, if you can provide the steps and procedure to switch the database from ARCHIVELOG mode to NOARCHIVELOG mode.

Regards,
Sima

the archive logs are all applied sqls since the last backup.

so if you do an rman backup, the number of the archive logs can be reduced. Since this is just a test database I guess backup is no issue for you?
