Oracle Dataguard Question on Physical Standby Database with a Time Lag

I have a Standby database (PROD_LAG) that has a delay of 24hrs. How do I check to see what Archive have applied, what is current, and what is left to do.
There is a script but its for a Logical Standby database...
Thanks you in advance...

ok a little bit more explanation.
The GUI does work but seems to report incorrect data.
I have carried out a switchover so the primary database is now 'offsite_emrep' and the standby database is 'office_emrep'
The GUI how ever still reports that office_emrep is the primary database.
I cannot add the offsite_emrep database as the host is unknown. I am however running the GUI from the Host.
I have the following from the agent status
[[email protected] bin]$ ./emctl status agent

  • What are the differences of creating a physical standby database with ASM?

    tell us what your research shows and we'll try to
    validate it. I am simulating Oracle ASM on a PC and I want to try
    DataGuard on it now. So I am trying to create DataGuard
    on an ASM system. The purpose is only learning and test.That's telling us how you are researching, not what you have observed.
    Your research could have included looking at the documetation, and you might have found

  • Problem creating physical Standby database with RMAN

    Hi All
    I am trying to learn oracle dataguard and as part of the process learning creating standby database.
    Platform : Sun-Fire-V250 Sparc, Solaris 10
    Database Version - Oracle 11R2
    I am creating standby database on same server, so directory structure is different.
    Following the instructions on Oracle site I managed to create a functional physical standby database. But I am not able to create standby database using RMAN. These are the steps that I followed-
    1.Set up all necessary parameters on primary database as done while creating physical standby database manually, eg setting force logging, creating standby logs etc.
    2.Edited parameter file on primary database as done while creating manual pysical standby database creation. Some of the changes done are-
    On Primary Database:
    *.FAL_CLIENT='orcl11020' #Primary database unique name
    *.FAL_SERVER='stdby_11' #Standby database unique name
    VALID_FOR=(ALL_LOGFILES,ALL_ROLES) db_unique_name=orcl11020'
    *.log_archive_dest_2='SERVICE=stdby_11 LGWR ASYNC VALID_FOR=(ONLINE_LOGFILES,PRIMARY_ROLE) db_unique_name=stdby_11'
    Copied same pfile for standby database and modified following-
    VALID_FOR=(ALL_LOGFILES,ALL_ROLES) db_unique_name=stdby_11'
    3. Add relevant information in tnsnames.ora and listener.ora files and then restart listener.
    3. Created password file with same credential as primary database.
    4.Up-to-date RMAN backup of primary database available.
    5.Create standby controlfile with rman
    While primary database s open (I tried with primary database in mount mode as well)-
    $>rman catalog rman/[email protected] target /
    6. Open a new terminal and startup standby database in nomount mode using parameter file created -
    $>export ORACLE_SID
    $>sqlplus / as sysdba
    SQL>STARTUP NOMOUNT pfile='<location/initfilename.ora'
    $> rman AUXILIARY / target sys/[email protected] catalog rman/[email protected]
    RMAN finishes without error but archive logs are not being tranported. Looking at the log, following caught my eye-
    Error 1017 received logging on to the standby
    Check that the primary and standby are using a password file
    and remote_login_passwordfile is set to SHARED or EXCLUSIVE,
    and that the SYS password is same in the password files.
    returning error ORA-16191
    FAL[client, ARC2]: Error 16191 connecting to orcl11020 for fetching gap sequence
    Errors in file /<>dir>/diag/rdbms/stdby_11/stdby_11/trace/stdby_11_arc2_24321.trc:
    ORA-16191: Primary log shipping client not logged on standby
    Errors in file /<dir>/diag/rdbms/stdby_11/stdby_11/trace/stdby_11_arc2_24321.trc:
    ORA-16191: Primary log shipping client not logged on standby
    So on both primary and standby I confirmed
    SQL> show parameter remote_login_passwordfile
    remote_login_passwordfile string EXCLUSIVE
    To make double sure that password files are same, I shutdown both databases, delete password files and recreated with same credentials.
    Password files are called - orapworcl11020 and orapwstdby_11
    Can someone guide me where thisngs are going wrong here please.

    Not sure if I understood it clearly.
    returns no rows so there is no gap.
    But could you please explain me the result of the previous query. To catch up again, on standby when I check
    75 NO
    74 NO
    76 NO
    77 NO
    I understand that though archive files have been copied across but they are not applied yet.
    On primary when I give your query -
    SELECT name as STANDBY,SEQUENCE#,applied, completion_time
    2 FROM v$archived_log
    3 where dest_id=2
    4 and sequence# BETWEEN 74 and 80;
    I get -
    stdby_11 74 YES 28-JUN-11
    stdby_11 75 YES 28-JUN-11
    stdby_11 76 YES 29-JUN-11
    stdby_11 77 YES 29-JUN-11
    stdby_11 78 YES 29-JUN-11
    stdby_11 79 YES 29-JUN-11
    stdby_11 80 YES 29-JUN-11
    stdby_11 75 NO 07-JUL-11
    stdby_11 74 NO 07-JUL-11
    stdby_11 76 NO 07-JUL-11
    stdby_11 77 NO 07-JUL-11
    stdby_11 78 NO 07-JUL-11
    I have intentionally given
    sequence# BETWEEN 74 and 80
    because I know in the current incarnaion of the database, max sequence is 78.
    So my understanding is, the rows between 28-29 June are from previous incarnation, correct me if I am wrong
    Archive files of the current incarnation, since I successfully created standby database are shipped but yet to be applied - am I right?
    Then my final question is, when will these archives be applied to standby database?
    I am sorry to ask too many questions but I am just trying to understand how it all works.
    Thanks for your help again

  • Creating physical standby databases with DG Broker & OEM

    Hi guys,
    I manage 8i, 9i & 10g databases through OEM
    Today, I would like to create physical standby db for the most important applications. Because I'm a lazy guy, I'd like to do it the easiest way, with GUI and wizzards provided by OEM.
    1. Do you know any tutorial on the Internet that would help to do it easily ? My only source up to now is the official DB broker documentation (, which is 300 pages long like every Oracle doc. I'd appreciate any tutorial that could lead me straight to the essential. I've heard that is not so tricky to create a physical standby db
    2. Is the procedure really different to create (and then manage) a physical standby database on Oracle 8i, 9i and 10g ? Is it possible to do it through DB Broker and OEM for every version ?
    thank you for your help

    Oracle Documentation is the best source of configuring any Oracle component.
    But, If you do not want to read the entire doc, and want to configure Dataguard Broker (without OEM), then here is the Link.

  • Physical Standby Database with slight complication

    Hello Database experts,
    Primary is a multi-node RAC instance , primarily two distinct schemas (for simplicity sake schema A on tablespace A1/A2 and schema B on tablespace B1/B2). There is a proposed physical standby database. Now primary is Enterprise Data warehouse with millions of updates per minute. Is it possible to somehow bypass objects owned by schema A to be propogated on DR instance.
    Any workaround possible?
    Assume that Hot backup of primary database backup has to be done so we can not perform nologging operations on schema A and Logical standby is not a option.
    Kind Regards,

    ***Is it possible to somehow bypass objects owned by schema A to be propogated on DR instance.***
    Yes. but not in physical standby. While bypassing the objects to physical standby the recovery cannot be enabled at the time. So data loss may occur. Try to configure logical standby database. you can get what you expect.

  • Issue on physical standby database

    I've a problem on standby database.
    I recently added a datafile on primary database, then I scp'ed the data file to physical standby database.On physical standby database I tried performing recovery.
    I get following message in my alert log
    WARNING! Recovering data file 88 from a fuzzy file. If not the current file
    it might be an online backup taken without entering the begin backup command.
    ORA-279 signalled during: ALTER DATABASE RECOVER standby database ...
    how can I fix this now.
    We keep physical standby database 2 day behind, and apply logs manually.
    Physical standby database is maintained manually.
    Could someone help me in getting out of this problem.

    Versus keeping it in manual mode, you can specify a time "delay" for the application of the logs:
    6.2.2 Specifying a Time Delay for the Application of Archived Redo Log Files
    In some cases, you may want to create a time lag between the time when redo data is received from the primary site and when it is applied to the standby database. You can specify a time interval (in minutes) to protect against the application of corrupted or erroneous data to the standby database. When you set a DELAY interval, it does not delay the transport of the redo data to the standby database. Instead, the time lag you specify begins when the redo data is completely archived at the standby destination.
    If you define a delay for a destination that has real-time apply enabled, the delay is ignored.
    Specifying a Time Delay
    You can set a time delay on primary and standby databases using the DELAY=minutes attribute of the LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_n initialization parameter to delay applying archived redo log files to the standby database. By default, there is no time delay. If you specify the DELAY attribute without specifying a value, then the default delay interval is 30 minutes.
    Canceling a Time Delay
    You can cancel a specified delay interval as follows:
    For physical standby databases, use the NODELAY keyword of the RECOVER MANAGED STANDBY DATABASE clause:
    For logical standby databases, specify the following SQL statement:
    These commands result in log apply services immediately beginning to apply archived redo log files to the standby database, before the time interval expires. Also, see:
    Section 12.8, "Using a Physical Standby Database with a Time Lag"
    Oracle Database SQL Reference for the DELAY attribute of the ALTER DATABASE RECOVER MANAGED STANDBY DATABASE statement

  • Test physical standby database in dataguard

    Hi all,
    I had a successfull dataguard implementation for oracle 9r2.
    Primary and standby databases are on different nodes, logs from primay are shipping and applying to physical standby database successfully.
    As these database are for oracle 11i ebs, so for testing dataguard status i had created a table manually having columns date and remarks. Periodically i insert few records in this table in primary database and then chek this tabel in standby database (by opening in read only mode).
    Now i want to test physical standby database with applications tierĀ  but don't want to disturb origional primary database.
    as these are the normal switchover steps
    1) at primary db
    2) at standby
    3) at primary, now this will be the stand by database
    4) at standby, now this will be the primary database
    My concern is if i skip step 1 and 3 and only execute step 2 and 4, will that be applicable for my requirement, or there is some other way to achieve this goal.

    To avoid touching the primary production DB, you may try to use the following command on your standby database side:
    alter database activate standby database;
    This will turn your standby database to primary database, however the log will be reset and this means you will need to rebuild your DR.
    Another way is to use flash back feature on your standby database, activate it and revert back to the flashback point when the DR testing is done.

  • Upgrading with a physical standby database in place

    Hi all
    I am planning to upgrade my database which is (Windows 32 platform) to It has a primary standby database. I only have 1 server for testing the primary database, so I am looking for some help.
    I was reading and I confuse about step 4 and 5
    +4. Install the new release of the Oracle software into a new Oracle home on the physical standby database system, as described in the Oracle Database Upgrade Guide.+
    +5. Mount the physical standby database.+
    My question is in step 5, when I mount the physical standby database, does it mounted using new Oracle binary or still using the old version? From my understanding what is step 4 doing is to copying files to new home only. Changing the service to use the new oracle binary is done by dbua. I know this when I test upgrading the primary database.

    new Oracle binary or the new Oracle home if you will.
    So you install the new software on the standby only, all the upgrade SQL gets done on the Primary and then you ENABLE and startup mount on the new oracle home and the standby gets upgraded from the Primary redo.
    Its pretty simple ( My exact plan )
    1. Disable log shipping from the Primary
    2. Shutdown Standby
    3. Install on Standby - Just the software
    4. Startup Standby in recovery mode - do NOT run r any SQL at the standby
    5. Shutdown Primary
    6. Install on Primary
    7. Run Upgrade SQL or DBUA at Primary
    8. Re-enable log shipping
    9. Monitor the redo apply from Primary to Standby - this will also upgrade the Standby data dictionary
    Make sure your tnsnames and listener files move to the new Oracle home and edit as needed.
    Another oracle note is 278641.1
    Best Regards

  • Backups on Physical standby database?

    I am using dataguard and a physical standby database.How to assign backups on physical standby database to reduce the load on Primary database.
    environment: windows
    Database version:
    What are the pro and cons on assigning RMAN backups jobs to physical standby database?

    Is it better to assign the RMAN backups on standby?i am using the RMAN catalog.Yes, Already mentioned to reduce contention on primary. You can register even standby.
    Do i need to change the setting to backup archive logs from standby database? If i won't backup the archive logs on Primary the FRA will be full and i can't access it ?You can include even archive logs with your database backup.
    How to assign the archive logs backups,full backup on standby database?Same script will work, Before that cancel MRP and after backup start MRP. That should be fine.

    i have created standby database with same directory structure of primary, now i have requirement to create with different directory structure.
    in oracle 8i we can not give multiple parameter for db_file_name_convert(ORA-01678: parameter db_file_name_convert must be two strings, a pattern and a replacement) and i do have partitions in primary as follows:

  • Createing a physical standby database.

    Can we create a physical standby database with in a single system in windows.
    If possible please please help me how to do.
    Thanks and Regards

    After making changes in the pfile and when i am starting the database in nomount stage with pfile i am getting the following error
    SQL> startup nomount pfile='E:\oracle\product\10.2.0\db_1\database\initoracle.ora'
    ORA-16024: parameter LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_1 cannot be parsed
    and my parameter file is

  • Create ONLINE logfile in physical standby database

    We have created a physical standby database with rman duplicate command on a remote server
    "duplicate target database for standby dorecover nofilenamecheck"
    When I see the standby server...Online logfiles are not created however its relevant entries are there in V$LOG and V$LOGFILE views.
    I guess it is the default behaviour of duplicate command in RMAN and we can not specify LOGFILE clause when we create standby database.
    Now the problem is we could not drop the online logfile on standby database since it's status is "CURRENT", "ACTIVE".
    Since the ONLINE LOGFILE are not actually created , "ALTER DATABASE CLEAR LOGFILE GROUP " command returns with error as it could not find the file in the server.
    So How we can drop the current/active online logfile and add new ones in standby db?

    I'm assuming you have physical standby. Here are step I did in the past.
    1) create a backup control file
    2) bring the database back using the "recreate control file" it the trace file BUT you need to remove or comment out the line that has the corrupt or missing redo log file. And don't forget to add the tempfile after you recreate the controlfile
    alter database backup controlfile to trace;
    GROUP 1 '/oracledata/orcl/redo01.log' SIZE 200M,
    GROUP 2 '/oracledata/orcl/redo02.log' SIZE 200M,
    GROUP 3 '/oracledata/orcl/redo03.log' SIZE 200M,
    # GROUP 3 '/oracledata/orcl/redo03.log' SIZE 200M
    -- GROUP 10 '/oracledata/orcl/redostdby04.log' SIZE 200M,
    -- GROUP 11 '/oracledata/orcl/redostdby05.log' SIZE 200M
    If you just want to add the standby redo log then using this command.
    alter database add standby logfile
    '/<your_path>/redostdby01.log' size 200M reuse,

  • Creating physical standby database on same machine with dataguard

    hi every one
    i m new in oracle databases,
    i read documentation to create physical standby databases,
    now i install virtual machine (vmware) on my system,
    i install windows xp on this vm and oracle 9i
    now i want to create standby database on the same machine in some other drive configured with datagurd
    virtual machine
    OS windows xp
    database oracle 9i
    plz reply me how i do this
    explain clearly step by step.
    plz reply me in detail

    When you need to have the standby database on the same server as the master, use lock_name_space in the init.ora.
    This parameter permits this to occur without having to worry about changing the db_name.

  • Problem with data guard Creating a Physical Standby Database turorial

    There is a tutorial of Creating a data guard Physical Standby Database:
    I tried to install it on two servers. One for primary database second for physical standby.
    I have error on C. Creating the standby database over the network, action #6:
    "On the standby system, set the ORACLE_SID environment variable to your <physical standby SID> (i.e. orclsby1) and start the instance in NOMOUNT mode with the text initialization parameter file."
    When I try to connect to idle instance there is an error pops up:
    C:\>sqlplus / as sysdba
    SQL*Plus: Release - Production on Thu May 21 16:28:10 2009

    ORA-12560: TNS:protocol adapter error
    I'v checked listener and it is runned. There is no service for database because there is no database yet.
    The question is did some one installed data guard configuration using this tutorial? Is there any errors in it? What should I do to finish this installation?

    On Windhose for every instance a service must have been created using the oradim command.
    Oracle tutorials are usually Unix-centric, as Windhose is an odd man out, so they don't discuss that bit.
    'Kindly do the needful' and create the service prior to starting the instance in nomount mode
    Hint: oradim is documented and has a help=y clause.
    IIRC there is an option in database control (in the maintenance part) which automates everything.
