Guys,

Is there any simple document detailing the installation of GG ? I am looking at basic install with one way replication, bi-directional replication and something that guides us the recovery scenarios.. Such the primary and the secondary going out of sync. I searched the web but there aren't many articles on this. I know it's still new but any hidden resources that you know of, which you could probably share ?

Many thanks in advance

Regards
G

    What separates a good consultant from a great consultant is hands on testing... and lots of it!

    This is also a good write up:
    http://www.pythian.com/news/7959/oracle-goldengate-installation-part-1/

    The docs have lots of usable examples and there's a decent write up on bi-directional. Start off with a single one way replication and understand everything you're doing. Once you get that down then setting up bi-directional is pretty straightforward. The hard part is determining what you are going to do when a conflict is detected. And please note that most packaged applications can not be replicated bi-directionally (e.g. Oracle EBS, SAP, etc.) so you'll likely need to make some application changes and therefore will need to have control to make such changes.

    Good luck,

    Some newly posted material is on:
    http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/goldengate/learnmore/index.html

    Towards the bottom there is a link for:
    Oracle GoldenGate Tutorial for Oracle to Oracle Version 10.4

    Which points to:
    http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/goldengate/learnmore/ogg-tutorial-ora-to-ora-10-4-177139.pdf

    It's regarding OGG 10.4 but as a beginner's guide there should transfer just fine.

    Have fun,
