Duplicate database for standby from active database

I'm running 11.1.0.7. Has anybody ever duplicated a standby database from active database and the active database being a physical standby open for read only with active dataguard instead of a primary dataguard database?
The key here is location. The primary is located at a remote site where network bandwidth is inadequate for fast copy of database. The active standby database is at same site where I would like to build the new physical standby.

I don't think you can, because "You cannot CONNECT RMAN to the standby database and then use DUPLICATE ... FOR STANDBY to create an additional standby database " and you can't fake it out by getting a controlfile from the primary because the controlfile has to match up with the backup and can't be a standby.
But I'm wondering if you could failover to the standby, duplicate, fail back, then... oh well, that will never work either, incarnation problem.
Snapshot standby? Could one back it up, then flashback restored new standby, change dbid? I would guess there would be an SCN problem, but don't know enough about it.

  • RMAN 11gR2 DUPLICATE TARGET FOR STANDBY FROM ACTIVE DATABASE - Issue -HELP

    First question.
    Can primary and standby database have the same SID name?
    As I recall it is yes.
    I believe they must have different GLOBAL or DB_UNIQUE_NAME?
    Anyway, RMAN I believe is telling me it is having problems copying control file on first and dies.

    Hi,
    Permissions Issue on STANDBY machine?First problem I see is the sysdba password must be the same on both sides (target and auxiliary dbs).
    From the documentation.
    The source database and auxiliary instances must use the same SYSDBA password, which means that both instances must have password files. You can
    create the password file with a single password so you can start the auxiliary instance and enable the source database to connect to it.Check all prereqs for the standby db duplicate here.

    Hello;
    Changing my answer - you can use repeat DUPLICATE to do this :
    http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/backup.112/e10642/rcmdupdb.htm#BGBEFJHH
    As an alternative you could move the RMAN backup and then roll it forward :
    http://www.visi.com/~mseberg/duprman2.html
    and then :

  • RMAN DUPLICATE FOR STANDBY FROM ACTIVE DATABASE fails

    Hello
    I'm trying to use RMAN DUPLICATE to create a standby database using Oracle 11.2.0.3 with PSU 6 on HP-UX.
    Primary is 2 node RAC. Standby is also 2 node RAC.
    Standby database instance is started in nomount mode.
    I use:

  • RMAN duplicate target database for standby from active fails to create newname for system tablespace/datafile

    When executing 'duplicate target database for standby from active'  the system tablespace/datafile (datafile 1)  is not cloned.  All other datafiles clone successfully.  The RMAN process aborts with the following errors while attempting to clone the system tablespace/datafile.
    ORA-19558: error de-allocating device
    ORA-19557: device error, device type: DISK, device name:
    ORA-17627: ORA-01041: internal error. hostdef extension doesn't exist
    ORA-17627: ORA-01041: internal error. hostdef extension doesn't exist
    ORA-03135: connection lost contact
    Here are the details:
    Primary is 11.2.0.2 RAC database  on an Exadata platform
    Standby is 11.2.0.2 Single Instance database (same patch level as primary) on a Red Hat Linux box
    This is an ASM to ASM duplication.
    This is not unique to this database.  We tried another database and go the same behavior - all datafiles clone successfully with the exception of the system tablespace/datafile.
    We have traced the RMAN execution and it seems to fail when it is trying to assign a NEWNAME to the system tablespace/datafile.
    We even issued an explicit SET NEWNAME command but RMAN ignored it.
    We also shutdown the primary and started is up in mount mode thinking that something had ahold of the System Tablespace/datafile.
    We also opened up the network firewall to allow permit any,any traffic.
    We increased the max_server_processes
    and added TCP.NODELAY=yes to the sqlnet.ora file.
    There seems to be some artifact present in our Primary System tablespace/data file that is preventing it form being cloned.
    checked all alert files grid, asm,  and dbhome - no abnormal messages.
    We are in the process of restoring the database from a backup but we would prefer to get this working using the 'Active Database' methodology

    I successfully created the standby database using RMAN backup and recovery.
    I started the managed recovery.  Archive logs are being sent from the primary to the standby ( I can see them in ASM), but the standby is not applying them.
    I get the following messages in the standby alert log...

  • Standby from active database

    Hello,
    I am attempting to create a physical standby database, following this guide:
    http://www.oracle.com/global/uk/education/downloads/uwe_data_guard.pdf
    as well as the oracle documentation on Data Guard. Using Oracle 11gR2 patched at #7 running on Windows Server 2008.
    I've set all the parameters, created password files and checked connectivity. Hopefully correctly. I will post pfile exports at the end.
    Here is where I hit a dead end.
    RMAN> connect target system/[email protected]
    connected to target database : HPROD89 (DBID)
    RMAN> connect auxiliary sys/[email protected]
    connected to auxiliary database: HPROD89STND (not mounted)
    RMAN> duplicate target database for standby from active database;Error from spool. I need to spool the file to get the error code, otherwise the only thing rman provides is a "error message stack follows" message with nothing after that.
    RMAN-03002: failure of Duplicate Db command at 11/19/2010 21:24:04
    RMAN-06136: ORACLE error from auxiliary database: ORA-03114: not connected to ORACLEI'm running rman on the standby server with the database in NOMOUNT as the guide linked above suggests. This raises a simple question to start with: what server do I run rman on? The one with the primary database, or on the standby?
    I hope it's just because it's getting late, but this issue has me confused .. rman clearly connects the auxiliary, but when trying to perform the actual duplication, it's not connected.
    Thanks for input.
    Regards.

    Hello;
    Script has to be run from auxiliary.
    Great details, but what I don't see is how you connect in RMAN.
    Example
    Start RMAN
    $ORACLE_HOME/bin/rman target=sys/@recover2 auxiliary=sys/@reclone
    Recovery Manager: Release 11.2.0.2.0 - Production on Wed Feb 22 14:50:31 2012

    connected to target database: RECOVER2 (DBID=3806912436)
    connected to auxiliary database: RECLONE (not mounted)Nothing in your tnsnames or listener jumps out as wrong. I copied them into my text editor and compared against my working ones.
    Generally for active duplication I start the future standby on a pfile NOMOUNT.
    Auxiliary Instance Initialization Parameters Needed :
    DB_NAME
    CONTROL_FILES
    DB_BLOCK_SIZE
    ( add extra parameters like DB_FILE_NAME_CONVERT and LOG_FILE_NAME_CONVERT instead of using the SET command - clean up standby spfile right after duplication )
    Then start RMAN and finally run a single line duplication command.
    $ORACLE_HOME/bin/rman target=sys/@primary auxiliary=sys/@standby

    Pl do not post duplicates - Issue in configuring Standby Database from Active database in 11g by RMAN

  • Duplicate target database for standby failing with below error

    Hello All, Need your assistance
    We are creating a physical standby database (standalone) from 2 node RAC database, OS =RHEL5 and DB =11gR2
    What we did: We took RMAN backup of primary DB along with archives and copied to standby server in same location. We have modified necessory prameters on primary as well as standby too.
    The command we used :
    RMAN>connect target sys/[email protected] auxiliary sys/[email protected]
    RMAN> run {
    allocate auxiliary channel ch1 type disk;
    duplicate target database for standby dorecover nofilenamecheck;
    release channel ch1;
    Note we tried : duplicate target database for standby as well as duplicate target database for standby nofilenamecheck methods too....But no luck..we are getting following error.
    channel ch1: reading from backup piece /u01/BDB/BWFCCPRD_5fmpdvce_1_1
    channel ch1: ORA-19870: error while restoring backup piece /u01/BDB/BWFCCPRD_5fmpdvce_1_1

    could you pease help to resolve this ....?
    Note : Creating standby using RMAN 11g new feature : duplicate target database for standby from active database is not possible in our environment since the network bandwith is tooooo low, We have tried and not able to succeed because of n/w issue, So we are doing this alternate method...!!!
    Looking for your valuable advises...
    Thanks in Advance....

    Take the fresh backup and also check the space crunch. The below clink may help you

  • How reliable is DUPLICATE .. FROM ACTIVE DATABASE ?

    Version : 11.2.0.3
    Platform : OEL 6
    DUPLICATE .. FOR STANDBY FROM ACTIVE DATABASE doesn't involve taking any RMAN Backup files. Right? Just transferring data across the network.
    Given that I have a good network throughput, how reliable it is to use this feature to create a standby from a 2 TeraByte Primary ? The standby DB will be created in our Data Center located 50KM away from the Primary Site.

The standby DB will be created in our Data Center located 50KM away from the Primary Site.2TB is not a small database to perform Duplicate from ACTIVE Database, Yes as you said there is no more need of backups from 11g if you use ACTIVE database.
    Do not consider of the distance, Consider the bandwidth speed between two sites and how fast data can transfer and how stable it is.
    You can test the network speed by transferring any one of the big file using SCP also, On top of that you can estimate how much time it can complete and ensure there is no network glitches/interruptions to avoid failure duplicate.

  • Duplicate from Active database

    Hi,
    I have RAC primary database running in 11.2.0.3 with linux 5(dc). We also have configured RAC cluster on DR site recently.Now we need to create stanby database on DR site.
    For this is have following doubts
    My database size is 6TB(from dba_segmnets) and total is 14TB(from dba_data_files)
    1) How duplicate of active database works internally? Does it copy the exact file to standby site for example copy datafile(which is of 5GB in size) and send it over to standby over network?
    2) Both primary and standby sites are in different states, so i was thinking to backup the primary database first to tapes and then courier tapes to dr site and then finally restore and recover standby.
    I have doubts in above approaches which should i implement. I think active database duplication will skip a)backup time b) courier time. Is that correct?
    However if my database size is 14TB and using 1st method, does it send files to dr worth of 14TB size?

    I am working on active database duplication and has below issue. Can any one help me on this?

  • Issue with RMAN DUPLICATE FROM ACTIVE DATABASE....

    Hi All,
    Not sure if I should continue from a closed thread, so apologies, opening a new one..
    I ran the following command:
    DUPLICATE TARGET DATABASE TO ' AUX1"
    from ACTIVE DATABASE

    So the copy went in fine...so I am confiused now....why when doing a recover, i get the below errors from output:

    No archivelogs were purged or backed up and the current logs were retained....so im somewhat confused....i am not restoring from backup but running active duplicate...
    should I re-run the command with:
    SET UNTIL SEQUENCE 64713 THREAD 1

    This fails saying that "ORA-12528: TNS:listener: all appropriate instances are blocking new connections" which is quite normal given that the listener is havig a handle in BLOCKED state for this AUXDB as it is in NOMOUNT state.
    Could you please help me on how to proceed?
    One option can be to create the controlfile manually and mount the instance before doing the duplicate. I hope Rman can continue from there.
    Another option is to go for backup based duplicate.
    Is there any other way to go?
    Provide static registration on AUXILIARY side for your auxiliary instance and try again.For example change listener.ora file as
    SID_LIST_LISTENER =
      (SID_LIST =
        (SID_DESC =
          (GLOBAL_DBNAME = AUXDB)
          (ORACLE_HOME = <your oracle home>)
          (SID_NAME = AUXDB)
    LISTENER =
      (DESCRIPTION =
        (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = <auxiliary host/ip>)(PORT = 1521))
      )And restart listener on auxiliary host then try again

    Don't know if this will help, but I use the connect string below to connect, then run the command below. This is, of course, after the rman backup from the prod system has been copied to the flash_recovery_area of the aux database. All file paths are the same between the two systems. Works like a charm most nights. The local tnsnames file on the rman catalog server has working entries for @SDPROD, @rman and @SDSTB.
