I am trying to use TOAD's alert log viewer.
I get the following error: UTL_FILE failed with ORA-29283 trying to open these files: alert_.log and alert.log.
What do I need to configure to get this to work correctly?
I do NOT find steps in the User's Guide to make it work...only on how it should work.
Being able to view an alert log really depends on the RAC configuration, and is really an Oracle issue.
There is a similar thread in an Oracle forum that talked about having to have a NFS share (http://forums.oracle.com/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=987977).
Better user-friendly messages will relay this information in future Toad releases.
In Toad 11 beta, Development has added a new report filter for RAC instances.
In the beta, one will get the same error, however, the message has been updated a bit...
