Hi All,

Environment - Production and Disaster Recovery Centre have a active passive cluster on solaris 10. Oracle version - Oracle 11gR2.

Want to Set up Physical Standby and configure a DG Broker to manually manage the DG.

I have gone through the steps as per MOS 1075908.1. Is it similar OR what additional steps needed.

Please advise

    I assume you mean "automatically", not "manually"? The extra steps are to enable the Broker! Start the DMON processes, create your configuration, add your databases, enable the configuration, sit back and relax.
    Have a go, it is pretty straightforward.

    hi,

    To setup and configure Data Guard Broker set the DG_BROKER_START init parameter to TRUE
    Edit the listener.ora on both nodes to add a static entry for DGMGRL

    pls have a look at this doc

    regards,

    My environment is a active-passive cluster (OS Cluster).
    The production has 2 Nodes, and DRC has 2 Nodes.

    The cluster is running fine.

    Do I need any extra steps to configure the physical standby like in listener or tnsnames. Since a active-passive cluster will sue a VIP for failover

    Sorry, man, I don't understand what you are trying to do. If you already have some sort of OS fault tolerance comnfigured, why are you using Data Guard?

    Setup is similar to this;

    IS DGMGRL can be configured along with manual failover also.
    or if dgmgrl confiure we cannot manage manual failover.is both can coesixts.
