Hi, Yesterday, I had problem with Archive Log, Pls tell me whether am I following the right steps. My Prod Archive Log destination got full. No one was able to connect to the DB, it was hanging. The Tivoli Storage Monitor which should have alerted me, but it didnt work for some reason in their server. Once the Archive Log destination got full 100%, I got the page and when I realized that it must be with ARCH log, I started moving few ARCH files to a temporary folder and started RMAN backup(for ARCH Files only) & once backup is done it will delete the ARCH files and I moved back those ARCH files from the temporary folder to the original destination. Moving those ARCH log files from one folder to another will it cause corruption? My colleague cautioned that this corrupted files may corrupt the whole RMAN database and we will loose the whole backup, Pls explain.
