It's an init paramter.

The docs.  When are you going to go to the docs first:

For most init parameters you can use either option:
1. Change the value in the pfile (if you use a pfile)
2. Use the "alter system" command to change the current value in memory and/or change the value in the spfile.

If you use the pfile option, those changes will not take effect until you stop and restart the database.  If you use the "alter system" option (this assumes you use an spfile, not the older-style pfil), the change will take effect immediately (if this is a parameter that supports dynamic changes).  

But, this particular parameter: log_archive_format cannot be changed dynamically.  So, if you use a pfile, you can make the change there, then stop and restart the database.  If you use an spfile, you can use an "alter system" command, but you must include "scope=spfile", since the change can only take effect the next time the database is restarted.

If that is the format you want, this should work.  If that parmater is not 'modifiable' you might need to add 'scope=spfile' then bounce the database.

Again, refer to the docs.
