Oracle Data Guard Chapter 3 - Implementing Standby Databases

For a description of the DBA wait event views, see the "free 11g poster" by Quest Software.

Starting the Standby Database


Mount the Oracle instance using the following statement:


At this point, the Oracle instance is up and running and ready to receive archived redo logs from the primary database even though, the logs will not be applied until the database is put in managed recovery mode.

Verify the Physical Standby Database

The complete setup can be verified by switching a log file on the primary database and checking the file on the Oracle instance in the STANDBY_ARCHIVE_DEST directory. Moreover, the Oracle Net setup for standby locations can be verified from the v$archive_dest view on the primary database.

Assume that on the standby site, the listener is not running. Querying the v$archive_dest view will show this error.

   Status, Error
