Hi,
My boss has asked me to create Oracle archived log to network drive instead of Local drive.

Is there anyway that i can get my archive log created on network drive instead of local drive.

As we want to save our storage space and want to keep archivelog on network.

Is there a way that if Archive log creation on Network drives falis, Oracle create Archivelog on Local drive.

We are running Data warehouse and on daily basis we have 22 to 25 Gig of Archive log created

Not in Windows.

Generally speaking, there is a way to switch for a destination to another one.
See ALTERNATE and REOPEN options of LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_n (follow the links).

Hi,
I already have archive log created in Flash_recovery_area/ARCHIVELOG folder (Locally in Database),
so is it possible to add optional destination by using LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_1=<network address>.

So that next time archivelog will be created on both places in Flash_recovery_area/ARCHIVELOG and in LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_1=<network address>.

And after this if network drive is not accessable then, it will only create archivelog in Flash_recovery_area/ARCHIVELOG folder
and will not halt database operation

Oracle does not support nertwork drive (unless you cut down security).

So it means that i can not create archive log to the network drive,
Is there any way in Oracle to Copy archive log to network drive whenever it is created?
Because my boss is very confident that we can create archive log in SAN box.
I want clear this doubt

Yes and no.
It is easy to create an AT command (or use Windows scheduler) to move them periodically (every 5 minutes for instance).
You can also do this with Oracle scheduler (see DBMS_SCHEDULER).
