    Will ASM automatically create log_archive_dest_1 directories?


      oracle 10gr2 - on ASM

      RHEL 5.8 64-bit


      I just created a new database with custom settings. I set the "archive" location to "+RECOVERY/orcl/archivelog".


      Would DBCA create the 'orcl/archivelog' directories automatically?


      Or I will have to create the directories manually using ASMCMD?

      When I use ASMCMD and look at the directories, I do not see these two.

      I thought ASM may create them on the fly so I issued "alter system switch logfile" three times. The third time, it just kind of hangs and SQL prompt does not come back.

      Please advise!
