I am facing this unusual issue. I wanted to enable archive log mode from noarchivelog mode and used alter command for the same as
ALTER SYSTEM SET log_archive_dest='LOCATION=D:\Oracle\Redo Log Archive\'and then shutdown the database. When i tried to restart as SQL>STARTUP mount it is giving below error
ORA-16024: parameter LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_1 cannot be parsed. After searching the web i tried
sql>ALTER SYSTEM SET log_archive_dest_1='LOCATION=D:\Oracle\Redo Log Archive\' scope=both; but getting
ORA-01034: ORACLE not available
Process ID: 0
Session ID: 0 Serial number: 0
and for the other commands like
SQL>archive log list it showing above error i.e
ORA-01034: ORACLE not available.
P.S: In init.ora in pfile folder there isn't any log_file_dest_1 parameter. Is there any way i could add it manually and start the database or any other way as alter command from sql plus is not working.
