Hi

we have set up:
dataguard where physical standby does rman backups in OEM.

So after switchover, is it normal that i have to register new primary in recovery catalog every time and is there any shortcuts for rman reconfiguration, after switch? Am i missing somekind of OEM internal setting that would ease the manual reconfiguration?

Thanks in advance.

    Databases are registerd with the rman catalog by DBID.  Your standby has a different dbid than the primary.

    You could always register the standby as soon as it is initially created.

    Actually they share DB ID as the standby was duplicated from primary. I'm thinking that if standby would get registered as soon as it's created, it would drop the registration, just like the primary does, when there's a switchover, cause standby can't be registered with the catalog.

    db_unique_name is distinct. I'm just wondering if there really isn't a "button" to transfer backup settings with policies when doing switchover. Just like there's a choice to transfer scheduled jobs to new primary.
