Oracle Login and directory oraarch question ?


I installed ERP 2004 IDES.

1. What is the default login name and password for oracle using Oracle Enterprise manager ?

2. How can I clear the directory "oraarch" ? The size is already more than 8 G ?

3. Can I stop oracle write to this directory ? Any impact ?

    Hi Wilson,

    1. Normally you should logon with your OPS$ user like OPS$ORA<SID> . default password for user "sys" is change_on_install and for user "system" - "manager".

    During IDES installation you had to change them though.

    2. Your archive logs are located in the "oraarch" directory. If you want to clear the directory, you'll have to backup logs (e.g. via brarchive with -sd option)

    3. To stop filling the directory you can deactivate database logging by running "alter database noarchivelog" via SQLplus. However, i would consider this option only if your system is only for solely training/test purposes and you have full DB backup which can be restored in case of hardware/software failures. Without logs you will be unable to restore your DB to the last commited transaction.

      dear mike,

      i have a question.regarding oraarch folder.

      we are taking regular backups using db13. and the backup files and archive logs are getting deleted at regular basis as we have taken option for save-delte in brtools.

      so saparch dos'nt have a problem in size.

      but the folder oraarch where oracle saves it's archve getting accumulated...and it dose'nt gets deleted.which is a problem for us.

      my query is:

      1. how to manage oraarch folder size.

      2. if we have to delete some files..then till when should we keep the files..

      3.does the archive logs gets saved in saparch and oraarch folder at the same time....if yes then it means we are having copies of archive logs at 2 location..??

      plzz clarify
