I want to practice oracle dataguard on my VMWare installed 11g 64-bit oracle 11gR2 database. My question is does dataguard come along with oracle software or it needs to be downloaded separately ?? Please help me to the links if a download is required. I could not find the dataguard in otn.oracle.com downlaods section.
Thanks In Advance.
DataGuard is a built-in capability in all Enterprise Edition. One enables it through building a standby database and making specific changes to the spfile.
My recommendation, before you start building anything, is that you read the docs and purchase a copy of Larry Carpenter's book.
