I'm currently running Oracle 10G R2 on SLES 10SPK2.

We are in the process of doing a Software Upgrade and my vendor recommend that we defer the Archive logs on our DB , we push Archive to 2 standby db's one is local and the other is at our DR Site. would I use the following on my prod db to defer and restart the Archive logs when the upgrade is done

alter system archive log stop

alter system archive log start
