Syntax STANDBY_ARCHIVE_DEST = filespec
Default value Operating system-specific
Range of values A valid path or device name other than RAW


The STANDBY_ARCHIVE_DEST parameter is deprecated. It is retained for backward compatibility only.

STANDBY_ARCHIVE_DEST is relevant only for a standby database in managed recovery mode. It specifies the location of archive logs arriving from a primary database. Oracle uses STANDBY_ARCHIVE_DEST and LOG_ARCHIVE_FORMAT to fabricate the fully qualified standby log filenames and stores the filenames in the standby control file.

You can see the value of this parameter by querying the V$ARCHIVE_DEST data dictionary view.
