Last updated on MARCH 19, 2014

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 10.2.0.5 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

The purpose of this document is to demonstrate how to identify and remove online redo log files belonging to a RAC instance that has been removed from the cluster (e.g. via srvctl remove instance -d <dbname> -i <inst_name>).
When all the log files of the related thread are dropped, the thread will be removed from v$thread.

Please note the preferred method to remove an instance is using dbca, this tool will automatically remove the instance related online redo logs, undo tablespaces and parameters.
