Hi All,

In my production 11gR2 database running in RHEL 5.6 version.

My DR site DELL server is advance version and the minimum OS version RHEL 5.7. So I couldn't able to install RHEL 5.6.

If I install advance version of OS then it will give any issues during the DR database implementation. Anyone please give your suggestion....

    Hello,

    Please refer this http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/server.112/e25608/standby.htm#i58150

    You can have your OS on primary and standby servers to be different, but make sure that the same release of Oracle Database is installed on both primary and standby servers.

    Note from the document:
    Data Guard provides increased flexibility for Data Guard configurations in which the primary and standby systems may have different CPU architectures, operating systems (for example, Windows & Linux), operating system binaries (32-bit/64-bit), or Oracle database binaries (32-bit/64-
    bit).
    The same release of Oracle Database Enterprise Edition must be installed on the primary database and all standby databases, except during rolling database upgrades using logical standby databases.
