18.104.22.168 on linux. Oracle clusteware. (dg broker not used)
We have 2 node rac primary and standby (2 node, but only one node active for managed recovery)
We have not added the standby database to the cluster, as standby is in read-only active dg setup.
just wondering, if we can add this to clusterware, so that it can automatically handle server reboots.
Also, s there any way to put the db in managed recovery as well ?
If the standby is part of the cluster, then configure it to MOUNT automatically on reboot.
srvctl modify database -d standby_d -s MOUNT
This will STARTUP MOUNT the instance, but will not automatically start redo apply. The next thing I would do is to configure the DG Broker. With the DG Broker, when the instance is started up, the Broker will automatically start the redo apply for you.
