Remote Capture – OGG-00446 Could Not Find Archived Log

Remote Extract process is failing with the below error,

OGG-00446 Oracle GoldenGate Capture for Oracle, ext1.prm: Could not find archived log

Source Database and Target Database are installed in a separate server. Oracle GoldenGate is installed in a separate server. So, all the three are in their respective servers individually.

Database is running in Archive log mode. Oracle Client is installed in the server where OGG is installed.

When using the Remote capture, we need to use the below parameter in the Extract parameter file.


This parameter is not supported for the Oracle client Here the Client version installed in

If one wants to be able to access archive logs from a different Oracle installation and using Classic Extract, then we need to use TRANLOGOPTOINS DBLOGREADER parameter. This does not imply or mean we are using ASM at the remote installation, it is just a means for OGG to read the remote archive logs.

The client version is unable to use TRANLOGOPTOINS DBLOGREADER which is what is needed.

Install Oracle Client and use the parameter TRANLOGOPTIONS DBLOGREADER in the Extract process parameter file. Restart the Extract process.
