log_archive_dest_?? is ISPDB_MODIFIABLE?


In Oracle 12c, some of the parameters can be changed in a pluggable database if the impact is limited to the current container.   However, the global parameters like SGA_TARGET can be set only through root container – CDB$ROOT.    A new column ISPDB_MODIFIABLE is added  in V$PARAMETER view to list the parameters modifiable from a PDB.


SQL> select count(*) from  v$parameter where ISPDB_MODIFIABLE='TRUE';

COUNT(*)

----------

171

There are 171 parameters listed to be modifiable from a PDB. Looking at the parameters closely, I was interested in the flowing parameters.


SQL> select name from v$parameter where name like '%log_archive%'  and ISPDB_MODIFIABLE='TRUE';

Above 63 parameters said to be modifiable from a PDB, but it is contrary to the definition – only a PDB affected parameter can be modified.   Above parameters are global parameters which will affect  in the stance level as oracle is sharing a single set of redo log files for all PDBs.    So, this is not making senesce that we can modify the parameter from a PDB.  I tried to change the log_archive_dest_state_1 to defer from a PDB, but failed.


SQL> show con_name

CON_NAME

------------------------------

SALESDB

SQL> alter system set log_archive_dest_state_1=defer;

alter system set log_archive_dest_state_1=defer

*

ERROR at line 1:

ORA-02097: parameter cannot be modified because specified value is invalid

ORA-65040: operation not allowed from within a pluggable database

Then I tried to change the value for the parameter  log_archive_dest_1 from a PDB which got failed agaian.  And I was able to change from the root container.


SQL> show con_name

CON_NAME

------------------------------

SALESDB

SQL> alter system set log_archive_dest_1= 'location=/n01/oradata1/12cDB/arch1' container=current ;

alter system set log_archive_dest_1= 'location=/n01/oradata1/12cDB/arch1' container=current

*

ERROR at line 1:

ORA-02097: parameter cannot be modified because specified value is invalid

ORA-65040: operation not allowed from within a pluggable database

SQL> conn / as sysdba

Connected.

SQL> alter system set log_archive_dest_1= 'location=/n01/oradata1/12cDB/arch1' scope=both;

System altered.

So, my assumption is correct – even though these parameters are listed as modifiable, you can’t really modify them.  Had a quick search in Oracle Support came up a bug note:  17266585 for wrongly listed above parameters are modifiable, they are not.
