    Hi Narendra,

    Refer steps below to resolve the issue

    1)You can check your current archival location by issuing, show parameter DB_RECOVERY_FILE_DEST

    SQL> show parameter DB_RECOVERY_FILE_DEST

    ------------------------------------ ----------- ------------------------------
    db_recovery_file_dest string /oradata2
    db_recovery_file_dest_size big integer 30G

    2)Now you want to set log_archive_dest.

    SQL> alter system set log_archive_dest='/oradata1';
    alter system set log_archive_dest='/oradata1'
    ERROR at line 1:
    ORA-02097: parameter cannot be modified because specified value is invalid
    ORA-16018: cannot use LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST with LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_n or

    3)If you want to set log_archive_dest first reset DB_RECOVERY_FILE_DEST and then set .

    SQL> alter system set DB_RECOVERY_FILE_DEST='';

    System altered.

    SQL> alter system set log_archive_dest='/oradata1';

    System altered.

    Note: Path used in the commands are for example only.

    If above commands does not work, you can directly modify the initSID.ora file and set the value for parameter log_archive_dest.

    Hope this helps.
