Hi, all
I am trying to move redo log file to another disk on sun solaris,
and I accidentally deleted logfile group 3, and I restored database back to last night' backup, but it still complains about the log file redo03.log, saying it needs to be archived. Please advise. Thanks.

D.F.

Oracle 9i, Sun Solaris.
