Data Guard :: Change Server B To Standby Database With A Running As Primary

Oct 4, 2010

I new to data guard concept.

I am using oracle 10g with data guard configured , I have primary ( A ) and standby database ( B ) .But because of some unavoidable conditions the primary database ( A ) got shutdown and was not starting , We shifted the standby database ( B ) at new location and changed it to primary with following command ,

startup mount;
alter database recover managed standby database finish;
alter database commit to switchover to physical primary;

This new primary ( B ) was open for end users for 2 days during which old primary ( A ) was shutdown .

I took the backup of ( B ) and restored it on A AND shutdown the B . Now A is acting as Primary database. Server B is shutdown . I want to change server B to standby database with A running as Primary .Is it possible ?


Data Guard :: Change Instance Parameter Of Primary Database And Standby

Nov 29, 2011

I have a requirement to change the instance parameter of the primary database and standby in the data guard. Any procedure to do the same. I have to do it directly on production and there is no test set up so I cannot experiment . The procedure I am thinking of is as below.

1. Stop the standby

2. backup the primary

3. Change the parameter and restart to make it effective

4. Start the primary

5. Go to stand by

6. Change the parameter and mount the database.

7. Check if both are in sync and apply logs if not.

Data Guard :: Getting Standby Host And DB Name From Primary

Oct 25, 2012

I'd like to know the Standby hostname and database name (db_unique_name) from primary using SQL. Simply put, which table in primary datbase gives us the standby host and the database name. I am aware that TNSNAMES.ORA contains details, but we cannot use SQL for that. I am also aware of V$ARCHIVED_LOG's DEST_ID column. But, the DEST_ID will not show the host and the db names, neither does V$PARAMETER's LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_n if SERVICE parameter is set to Connect Identifier.

If I further paraphrase my problem, how I'd relate a dest_id to a standby host and database using SQL.

SELECT <columns> FROM <v$some_view> WHERE dest_id IN (2, 3);

2            host2           standby_1
3            host3           standby_2DB version : 10g
OS : Solaris 10

Data Guard :: Primary Not Open After Standby Configuration

Jul 19, 2011

I did standby before and it works wighout any disturbations and even configuration seems to me not very complicated - but it was before. now i am trying to do standby configuration once again. there is database named DESK.

two physical serwers:
sczepl-db07 - primary
r00979 - standby

on each for this serwer there is listener listening on port 1521, and on each is tnsnames configured properly:

for sczepl-db07
(ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = sczepl-db07)(PORT = 1521))

so why primary don't see standby db and claims that ther is no standby service? i proved that there is connection primary <--> standby.

I have one primary database and one physical standby database on my data guard environment.

Now i want one more physical standby database in my data guard environment, meaning i want 2 physical standby. since this is a production environment, i need to take great care. However, downtime will be mandatory.

[u]init.ora for production:[/u]

Data Guard :: RAC Primary To Single Instance Standby Using

Mar 2, 2011


2 NODE RAC Cluster/Linux x86-64/ RDBMS

Standby server:

Brand new box, and I installed (software only)

I have a brand new box set-up for a single-instance standby database, and I have installed software only.

Do I need to patch to before I send a copy of the primary over to be set-up as a standby? If so, how do I patch without having a local database in place as this server will only be used for a standby? Can patching the oracle_home only be done?

Data Guard :: Running Observer On Different OS As Compared To Primary And Secondary DBs

Jan 28, 2013

Primary RAC and Standby RAC databases are using version They are configured & controlled via Data Guard Broker. Currently, the observer runs from one of the Standby nodes. All are on Solaris x86 64bit OS version 10.

Now, I have to move Observer to 3rd DC and I am looking If I could use another OS for observer instead of same as DB OS version. Why? Our new infrastructure is on RHEL Linux, therefore, I would like to deploy observer once and then wait for existing databases to be upgraded and moved to RHEL. Also, i understand that database and observer software should be of same version e.g. 10g, 11g.

My question is what if i install & configure observer on RHEL ? The end result would be:

1. Primary DB: Solaris 10, Oracle Software binaries version
2. Secondary/Standby DB: Solaris 10, Oracle Software binaries version
3. Observer: RHEL 5.8, Oracle Software binaries version

Is it accepted mix configuration say e.g. to run for six months? Also, it would be grateful to know if there any license implications when running observer on a different node running no databases at all.

We have a primary and a standby (Physical Dataguard) site.

(Oracle 11gR1 OEL 5)Is there any possibility to convert snapshot database (standby) directly to Primary. Instead of manual switchover I want to do this

I have checked that snapshot creates a guaranteed restoration point which reverts back changes in Standby.

Data Guard :: Query Regarding Standby Database State When Primary Is Down / Unreachable

Feb 20, 2013

I want to know if there is any reflection on the standby database states when it's primary is down or not reachable? I want to use this information from standby node to determine if I can programmatically execute (dgmgrl) failover operation or not? This is considering that the broker configuration has no fast-start failover and no observer enabled/configured.

Data Guard :: Primary Database Is RAC And Physical Standby Is Single Instance

Mar 27, 2013

I am using Oracle RAC as primary database, we are going to start using Oracle data guard. So I am designing my infrastructure and planing to use Oracle Single instance as my physical stand by database.

My question is it feasible to have my standby database as single instance while the primary is RAC? is it feasible to build my Oracle single instance standby database from the RMAN backup of the RAC primary database? Is there any restrictions (or any points to be taken into consideration) since my primary database is RAC while the physical standby is Oracle single instance?

in the below link


it was mentioned that primary can be RAC or single and same for standby, but my question is it feasible to have primary as RAC while standby as single instance? or it should be like each others?

The primary database can be either a single-instance Oracle database or an Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC) database. Similar to a primary database, a standby database can be either a single-instance Oracle database or an Oracle RAC database.

Data Guard :: Create Control File With Standby Keyword On Primary Database

Jul 4, 2012

What is difference when you issue a create controlfile with "standby" keyword on the primary database


vs. creating a control using

ALTER DATABASE BACKUP CONTROLFILE to '/path/db_control.ctl';

what does ORACLE put into the standby control that is "extra"? ie. what is the difference between a standby control file and a normal control file?
