Q

I have space in log_arch_dest, so why am I getting the ORA-00257 error?

An Oracle user asks why they are getting the ORA-00257 error even though they have sufficient space in log_arch_dest.

I am getting the ORA-00257 error on 10.2.0.2 Database on SUSE Linux. I have sufficient space in log_arch_dest. Can you help me?
The next thing to check is to ensure the Oracle user has sufficient permissions to write to the archive destination.
