Hi all experts,

My primary database is on Windows Machine windows 2008 64 bits. The Primary database is in 11GR2. I want to create standby database for my windows based database into Solaris machine. Can you please tell me how i can do it in two different servers? I would appreciate if someone share their ideas and notes.

    I hesitate to answer because you don't seem to close your old questions or give points to those who help. However I also believe in giving the benefit of the doubt.

    Windows Machine windows 2008 64 bits and Solaris. Data Guard will not work with this combination.

    Source :

    Data Guard Support for Heterogeneous Primary and Physical Standbys in Same Data Guard Configuration [ID 413484.1]

    The best option might be Linux which will work with Windows.

    Best Regards
