Data Guard Create Configuration Command Tips

Oracle Database Tips by Donald BurlesonDecember 9, 2015

Oracle Data Guard Oracle 10g:  New Features of Data Guard

Data Guard Broker improvements

The DGMGRL CLI command set is used to configure the standby configuration. Oracle Database 10g has introduced many improvements to the command set and has also added extra functionality. Many of the commands have been simplified.

The CREATE CONFIGURATION COMMAND is highly simplified and only three arguments need to be provided.

  • The configuration-name is a name provided for the broker configuration.

  • The database-name is the name that will be used by the broker to refer to the primary database object.

  • The connect-identifier can be a fully specified connect-descriptor or a name to be resolved via an Oracle Net naming method, such as TNS, to the primary database.


The above text is an excerpt from the book: Oracle Data Guard Handbook
