I know but I have physically deleted one of the online redo logs to see how I recover from that and I get the following after restoreing the database :
ORACLE instance started.
Total System Global Area 73242652 bytes
Fixed Size 75804 bytes
Variable Size 20631552 bytes
Database Buffers 52428800 bytes
Redo Buffers 106496 bytes
ORA-00313: open failed for members of log group 1 of thread 1
ORA-00312: online log 1 thread 1: 'F:\ORACLE\ORA817\DATABASE\LOGPICIS1A.ORA'
Ok what I am doing is creating different senarios and trying to recover from them, but this one is tricky. I had assumed that you could rebulid the redo logs somehow after said a hard disk failure. Is this not possible? What do you do if you loose the online redo logs?
It is possible rebuild online redo logs if you have lost them. Just recriate them. If I lose one online redo log from log group - I have another member on another HD, I hope 2 HD cant crush in the same time. So I just copy or rename log member.
