ORA-32006: %s initialization parameter has been deprecated tips

Oracle Error Tips by Burleson Consulting


The Oracle docs note this on the ora-32006 error:

       ORA-32006: %s initialization parameter has been deprecated

Cause: A deprecated parameter was specified at startup
Action: Consult Oracle documentation to find new parameters to use instead.

Many users find that they are confronted with ORA-32006 in association with Archivelog mode.


while startup(Archivelog mode) the following message displayed

ORA-32006: LOG_ARCHIVE_START initialization parameter has been deprecated.

how to solve this problem ?


Just remove this parameter from your Initialization Parameter File (INIT.ORA/ SPFILE).

Here is another problem from a user who has been confronted by ORA-32006 from Oracle DBA Forums:


log_archive_start parameter is deprecated in 10g.LOG_ARCHIVE_START parameter is no longer required to be set in order to run the database in ARCHIVELOG mode. This parameter is deprecated in Oracle 10g. If you put this parameter in your init of spfile, database will start , but will get following error.

ORA-32006: LOG_ARCHIVE_START initialization parameter has been deprecated ORACLE instance started.

However, if we change the LOG_ARCHIVE_FORMAT to something other than the default %s,%t,%r, it will fail.
and you get following error.

ORA-32006: LOG_ARCHIVE_START initialization parameter has been deprecated
ORA-19905: log_archive_format must contain %s, %t and %r


I set log_archive_start as TRUE in init.ora, and didn't get ora-32006
