11.2.4 - Standby Database open in read only

Postby pb2070 » Wed May 14, 2014 11:00 am

Hi Tim.

I followed the below article "
https://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 ?

Active data guard is in the product by default. You are just not allowed to use if in a real system unless you have paid the licensing money. :)

Similar to Diagnostics and Tuning Pack... :)
