Data Guard :: Change Server B To Standby Database With A Running As PrimaryOct 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 ,
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 ?
