Is ARCHSOURCE and ARCHDEST the same as Oracle Archive Log Destination?


No, it should never be the same.

ARCHSOURCE and ARCHDEST variables should contain the same directory on primary and standby server. On standby server, this directory is used to receive archivelogs from primary. On the primary server, this directory is not used, but when the primary server switches role and becomes standby, then this directory will be used to receive archive logs from the primary database.
