Can I have capture look in another directory, other than ARCH_LOG_DEST
The shareplex capture process by default will look in the ARCH_LOG_DEST for archived redo logs. You can set an alternative location by setting the following parameter.
sp_ctrl> set param SP_OCT_ARCH_LOC /your_full_path
sp_ctrl> set param SP_OCT_ARCH_LOC /disk1/log;/disk2/log
In this example, Capture will search under both /disk1/log and /disk2/log paths to find the logs.
Refer to solution SOL19223 for RAC instance settings.
This parameter defines the path to the archive logs. When the redo logs wrap, SharePlex looks for the archive log in Oracleâ€s archive log list. If SharePlex cannot find the archive log there, it looks in the directory or directories specified by this parameter. The default is the /home directory. If the path for the archive logs is different, specify the correct full path name with this parameter. You can specify more than one directory path if you separate them with semicolons (;) as shown in the following example:
