Data Guard, Physical Standby Implementation, Step by Step
By AVargas on Sep 19, 2007
Although Enterprise Manager Grid Control provides the simplest way to implement Data Guard, in this post I'm presenting an exercise of manual implementation step by step.
I think this is a valuable exercise that provides a close insight of the basic parameters and steps required to setup Data Guard, it provides also a good feeling of how this technology works, that the high level of automation we got from Grid Control cannot give.
This exercise can be completed in a couple of hours if you have two servers with 10g Oracle homes already installed, the step by step guide can be downloaded here:
