0. Introduction

PLEASE NOTE in 12c Data Guard is set up at the Container level and not the individual Pluggable database level as the redo log files only belong to the Container database and the individual pluggable databases do not have their own online redo log files.

Definition of Active Dataguard:

Oracle Active Data Guard enables read-only access to a physical standby database for queries, sorting, reporting, web-based access, etc., while continuously applying changes received from the production/primary database.

Goal : How to Create Physical Standby Database using RMAN Backup Without Using Duplicate Command

On Primary (Step 2 to Step 12)


2. Enable Forced Logging on Primary

SQL> select name, open_mode,cdb from v$database;

NAME      OPEN_MODE            CDB
--------- -------------------- ---
UOIN1CON  READ WRITE           NO

SQL> select force_logging from v$database;

FORCE_LOGGING
---------------------------------------
NO

SQL> ALTER DATABASE FORCE LOGGING;

Database altered.

SQL> select force_logging from v$database;

FORCE_LOGGING
---------------------------------------
YES <----

SQL>


3. Check Password File on Primary

[oracle@rac1 dbs]$ pwd
/u01/app/oracle/product/12.2.0.1/dbs
[oracle@rac1 dbs]$ ls -ltr orapwUOIN1CON
-rw-r-----. 1 oracle dba 3584 Dec 14 12:26 orapwUOIN1CON
[oracle@rac1 dbs]$


4. Configure a Standby Redo Log on Primary

-- Since we have 3 online redo log file groups, we need to create 4(3+1) Standby redo log file groups
-- Standy Redo logs files come into picture only when protection mode is Maximum Availability and Maximum Protection.

8. Transfer PASSWORD FILE TO STANDBY SIDE

-- Copy the password file from the primary to standby $ORACLE_HOME/dbs and rename it to the standby database name.
-- The username is required to be SYS and the password needs to be the same on the Primary and Standby.
-- The best practice for this is to copy the passwordfile as suggested.
-- The password file name must match the instance name/SID used at the standby site, not the DB_NAME.
