2321898 - RAO Missing Archive Log Files after restoring to archive directory - RSO


  • The main archive log directory filled up and caused several archive log files to not be copied to the secondary location which is used by SAP Replication Agent for Oracle (RAO). 
  • The archive logs were restored to the secondary location.
  • The log files are being treated as if they are missing. After doing a "ra_helparchive" command, these log files do not show up in the list (as either accessible or invalid).
  • How to get these missing archive log files to show up in the "ra_helparchive" list as being "Accessible".
