1. Overview

AIM:Without shutting down primary, we need to create physical standby database using RMAN DUPLICATE FROM ACTIVE DATABASE command (No need to take backup of primary database) 

Active Data Guard is a new option from Oracle Database 11g Enterprise Edition.

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.

3. Enable Forced Logging on Primary

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

4. Copy Password File from Primary to standby

[oracle@rac2 tmp]$

[oracle@rac2 tmp]$ scp -p pwddell.258.1000514183 oracle@racdg1:/u01/app/oracle/product/12.2.0/dbhome_1/dbs/orapwDELL_DG1
[oracle@rac2 tmp]$ scp -p pwddell.258.1000514183 oracle@racdg2:/u01/app/oracle/product/12.2.0/dbhome_1/dbs/orapwDELL_DG2


5. Configure Standby Redo Log on Primary

The standby redo logs must be the same size as the primary database online logs. The recommended number of standby redo logs is:

(maximum # of logfiles +1) * maximum # of threads

This example uses two online log files for each thread. Thus, the number of standby redo logs should be (2 + 1) * 2 = 6. 
That is, one more standby redo log file for each thread. 

-- Standy Redo logs created in the primary and RMAN will create them in standby automatically while running duplicate command.

-- Standy Redo logs files come into picture only when protection mode is Maximum Availability and Maximum Protection.
