I followed the below article "http://www.oracle-base.com/articles/11g ... -11gr2.php
to create standby database on OL 6.5 and Windows 2008 64 bit Server and to learn.
Used Oracle 11.2.4. It was successful Installation!
There you mentioned " This allows the standby database to be open in read-only mode...etc..There are licensing implications for this feature..etc" in the section
" Read-Only Standby and Active Data Guard".
But, I could see the Standby Database in " Read only with apply" opened.
Of course I'm happy for that but also with a question mark. How come it works? is it because of 11.2.4 ?
