"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

01 is already in use:  
ALTER DATABASE ADD STANDBY LOGFILE ('/u01/app/oracle/oradata/orcl11/redo04.log') SIZE 52428800;

Although I'd prefer to see my logs spread to additional drives, and to have at least two members per group to avoid failure points.  HTH
