Standby Database in Oracle 11g

This post explains the method of creating a Physical Standby Database using 11g RMAN Duplicate from active database feature which was introduced on 11gR1 onwards. This method is very efficient because we do not need the backup of primary database. Here in my case, I have created the standby on same server as testing standby. I will post the standby database on different machine later on. So below the steps to create the standby database. 

Primary Database  : DB_UNIQUE_NAME:   prim 
Standby Database : DB_UNIQUE_NAME:   stand

Follow the below steps as in order  :

Step 1 : Enable Force Logging on the Primary database : It is a best practice to place the primary database in force logging mode so that all operation are captured in the redo stream.

On primary database:

C:\>sqlplus sys/xxx@prim as sysdba

SQL*Plus: Release 11.2.0.1.0 Production on Thu Jun 23 11:23:37 2011
Copyright (c) 1982, 2010, Oracle.  All rights reserved.

Connected to:
Oracle Database 11g Enterprise Edition Release 11.2.0.1.0 - Production
With the Partitioning, OLAP, Data Mining and Real Application Testing options

SQL> alter database force logging;
Database altered.

Step 2 :  Create the password file for the Standby  (for os other than window)

$ orapwd file=$ORACLE_HOME/dbs/orapwstand.ora  password=xxxx

In case of window  create service as

C:\>oradim -new -sid stand -intpwd  xxxx  -startmode m
Instance created.

Note  -  Ensure that the same password is used as the one used while creating the password file on the Primary host or we can copy and paste the same password file and futher rename as pwd<sid>.ora in case of window (for example, in this case pwdstand.ora)

Step 3 :  Update network configuration files(tnsnames.ora)

Add the following entries to the tnsnames.ora file .
prim =
  (DESCRIPTION =
    (ADDRESS_LIST =
      (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = xxxx)(PORT = 1521))
    )
    (CONNECT_DATA =
      (SERVICE_NAME = prim)
    )
  )

stand =
  (DESCRIPTION =
    (ADDRESS_LIST =
      (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = xxxx)(PORT = 1521))
    )
    (CONNECT_DATA =
      (SERVICE_NAME = stand)
    )
  )

C:\>tnsping stand

Used TNSNAMES adapter to resolve the alias
Attempting to contact (DESCRIPTION = (ADDRESS_LIST = (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = xxxx)(PORT = 1521))) (CONNECT_DATA = (SERVICE_NAME = stand)))
OK (30 msec)


Step 4  : Add a static entry in the listener.ora file  and reload or restart the listener.

SID_LIST_LISTENER =
  (SID_LIST =
    (SID_DESC =
      (GLOBAL_DBNAME = prim)
      (ORACLE_HOME = D:\app\Neerajs\product\11.2.0\dbhome_1)
      (SID_NAME = prim)
    )
    (SID_DESC =
      (GLOBAL_DBNAME = stand)
      (ORACLE_HOME = D:\app\Neerajs\product\11.2.0\dbhome_1)
      (SID_NAME = stand)
    )
  )

LISTENER =
  (DESCRIPTION =
    (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = xxxx)(PORT = 1521))
  )

C:\>lsnrctl

The command completed successfully

Step 5 :  Create a init.ora file on the Standby host with just a single parameter 

Open notepad and add parameter and save it as stand.ora
DB_NAME=prim

Step 6 : Create the required directories on the Standby host 

Check the value of the parameter used in parameter file of the Primary database. Ensure that this directory structure also exists on the Standby host. If the directory structure differs in any way on the Primary and Standby server, we will have to ensure that the RMAN rcv file to create the Standby database is amended to reflect this as well.In my case, I  have create a folder inside the "oradata" folder as  stand (D:\app\Neerajs\oradata\stand) and pfile,dpdump,audit resp. inside "admin" folder (D:\app\Neerajs\admin\stand) . Here we have not add the parameter for diverting the logfile and datafile .By default is taking the "oradata" and  "admin"  folder. If we want to change the location of datafile or logfile then we change the location by using the below location .

db_file_name_convert  = ('Primary_location_datafile','Standby_location_file')  
log_file_name_convert ('Primary_location_logfile','Standby_location_logfile')
We can add this parameter in  active_standby.rcv

Step  7 :  Create the active_standby.rcv file

DUPLICATE TARGET DATABASE  FOR STANDBY
FROM ACTIVE DATABASE  DORECOVER 
SPFILE 
SET DB_UNIQUE_NAME='stand' 
SET LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_1=’LOCATION=D:\STAND\’ 
SET LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_2='service=prim LGWR SYNC REGISTER VALID_FOR= (online_logfile,primary_role)' 
SET STANDBY_FILE_MANAGEMENT='AUTO' 
SET FAL_SERVER='prim'
SET FAL_CLIENT='stand' 
SET CONTROL_FILES='D:\app\Neerajs\oradata\stand \CONTROL.CTL’ ; 

Step  8 : Start the Standby database instance in NOMOUNT state

Step 9 : From the Primary database,run the following RMAN command to create the Standby Database 

C:\> rman target sys/xxxx@prim  auxiliary  sys/xxxx@stand cmdfile=D:\receive.rcv.txt

The Data Guard "alter database set standby to maximize performance" is the default behavior.  This  command sets the highest level of performance, and protects from failure of any single component.  Oracle says that "'alter database set standby to maximize performance" is useful for applications that can tolerate some data loss. For example, if the last standby is unavailable, processing will continue on the primary instance. When the standby becomes available, re-synchronization is done automatically.  The maximize availability mode protects from failure of any single Data Guard component .

SQL> alter database set standby database to maximize availability;
Database altered.

SQL> alter database open;
Database altered.

SQL> select protection_mode,protection_level from v$database;

PROTECTION_MODE                        PROTECTION_LEVEL

MAXIMUM AVAILABILITY               MAXIMUM AVAILABILITY


Enjoy   :-)

Excellent work!

can we setup standby database as 2 node RAC on the same set of servers/cluster as Primary database?

Anonymous said...

I want to Create physical standby database on my pc. and also primary database are ther.
Is it possible to do both on same PC. ( I'm not user any server)
For practice purpose.

Is it possible to create primary database and physical standby database on same computer.
For practical purpose.
No use any server.
plz help.

Thanks For Writing Blog.

I install two instance one is oracle and another is oracle_standby on windows 7 (same PC ) not other server or VM.
and directory structure is
1) d:/app/oradata/oracle/....
2) d:/app/oradata/oracle_standy/....
and db_name is different.
Still Possible to implement data guard on same PC.

Here you run RMAN command but is it possible using data pump. If as possible then just demo some script.)

I confuse in RMAN what is SCN during backup as per you script.


I waiting for your answer.

Thanks For Writing Blog.

I install two instance one is oracle and another is oracle_standby on windows 7 (same PC ) not other server or VM.
and directory structure is
1) d:/app/oradata/oracle/....
2) d:/app/oradata/oracle_standy/....
and db_name is different.
Still Possible to implement data guard on same PC.

Here you run RMAN command but is it possible using data pump. If as possible then just demo some script.)

I confuse in RMAN what is SCN during backup as per you script.


I waiting for your answer.
