Re: changing archive from noarchive

You're missing "startup mount"; "alter database archivelog" and "alter database 
open" after shutdown immediate.

But if you're doing it the first time, make sure you understand the concepts of 
archivelogging and online backups (if you're gonna do those) first. 
docs.oracle.com will help (backup & recovery guide).

  Subject: changing archive from noarchive


  hi all,

  This is the first time, I am going to put one production server, which is 
running in Active-Passive cluster, in archivelog mode from noarchive log mode. 
As I said since this is the first time , I am going to do this , so I don know 
what are the changes required. My plan is as : 

  1) setting log_archive_dest,log_archive_format & log_archive_start parameters 
in init<sid>.ora/spfile<sid>.ora on both the nodes
  2) connecting to oracle server with sys/pass@string as sysdba
  3) shutting down the database using SHUTDOWN IMMEDIATE
  4) starting the database normally using STARTUP

  Do I need to do something else??? Plz. sugges.
