The Enviroment
     2 Linux servers, Oracle Distribution 2.6.9-55 EL i686 i386 GNU/Linux
     Oracle Database 10g Enterprise Edition Release 10g R2
     ssh is configured for user Oracle on both nodes
     Oracle Home is on identical path on both nodes
Implementation notes:
     Once you have your primary database up and running these are the steps to follow:
     1.  Enable Forced Logging
     2.  Create a Password File
     3.  Configure a Standby Redo Log
     4.  Enable Archiving
     5.  Set Primary Database Initialization Parameters
     Having followed these steps to implement the physical standby you need to follow these steps:
     1. Create a Control File for the Standby Database
     2. Backup the Primary Database and transfer a copy to the Standby node.
     3. Prepare an Initialization Parameter File for the Standby Database
     4. Configure the listener and tnsnames to support the database on both nodes
     5. Set Up the Environment to Support the Standby Database on the standby node.
     6. Start the Physical Standby Database
     7. Verify the Physical Standby Database Is Performing Properly

All prerequisites raclinux2and  raclinux1Manually setting up a Physical standby database is a simple task when all prerequisites and setup steps are carefully planed and executed. In this example We use 2 hosts,

Enable Forced Logging
  In order to implement Standby Database we enable ‘Forced Logging’.
  This option ensures that even in the event that a ‘nologging’ operation is done, force logging takes precedence and all operations are logged   into the redo logs.
  SQL> ALTER DATABASE FORCE LOGGING;
  Database altered.
Create a Password File
  A password file must be created on the Primary and copied over to the Standby site. The sys password must be identical on both sites. This is   a key pre requisite in order to be able to ship and apply archived logs from Primary to Standby.

 [oracle@raclinux2 ~]$ cd $ORACLE_HOME/dbs
[oracle@raclinux2 dbs]$ orapwd file=orapw10gpri password=oracle force=y

SQL> select * from v$pwfile_users;

USERNAME                       SYSDB SYSOP
—————————— —– —–
SYS                            TRUE  TRUE

Configure a Standby Redo Log
  A Standby Redo log is added to enable Data Guard Maximum Availability and maximum Protection modes. It is important to configure the   Standby Redo Logs (SRL) with the same size as the online redo logs.  In this example I’m using Oracle Managed Files, that’s why I don’t need to provide the SRL path and file name. If you are not using OMF’s   you then must pass the full qualified name.

Set Primary Database Initialization Parameters
  Data Guard must use spfile, in order to configure it we create and configure the standby parameters on a regular pfile, and once it is ready we   convert it to an spfile.
  Several init.ora parameters control the behavior of a Data Guard environment. In this example the Primary database init.ora is configured so   that it can hold both roles, as Primary or Standby.

Standby Database Steps
Here, we are going to create standby database using backup of the primary database using rman.where in comparison to user managed backup, rman is comfortable and flexible method.

Create an RMAN backup which we will use later to create the standby:

[oracle@raclinux2 ~]$ . oraenv
ORACLE_SID = [orcl] ? 10gpri
[oracle@raclinux2 ~]$ rman target=/

Recovery Manager: Release 10.2.0.1.0 – Production on Wed Jan 20 18:41:51 2010

Copyright (c) 1982, 2005, Oracle.  All rights reserved.

connected to target database: 10GPRI (DBID=3603807872)

RMAN> backup full database format ‘/u01/app/oracle/backup/%d_%U.bckp’ plus archivelog format ‘/u01/app/oracle/backup/%d_%U.bckp’;

Next, create a standby controlfile backup via RMAN:
RMAN> configure channel device type disk format ‘/u01/app/oracle/backup/%U’;

new RMAN configuration parameters:
CONFIGURE CHANNEL DEVICE TYPE DISK FORMAT   ‘/u01/app/oracle/backup/%U’;
new RMAN configuration parameters are successfully stored
released channel: ORA_DISK_1

RMAN> BACKUP CURRENT CONTROLFILE FOR STANDBY;

RMAN> BACKUP ARCHIVELOG ALL;

In this simple example, We are backing up the primary database to disk; therefore,we must make the backupsets available to the standby host if we want to use them as the basis for my duplicate operation:
[oracle@raclinux2 ~]$ cd /u01/app/oracle/backup
[oracle@raclinux2 backup]$ ls -lart

NOTE:

The primary and standby database location for backup folder must be same.

for eg: /u01/app/oracle/backup folder

On the standby node create the required directories to get the datafiles

mkdir -p /u01/app/oracle/oradata/10gsb
mkdir -p /u01/app/oracle/oradata/10gsb/arch
mkdir -p /u01/app/oracle/admin/10gsb
mkdir -p /u01/app/oracle/admin/10gsb/adump
mkdir -p /u01/app/oracle/admin/10gsb/bdump
mkdir -p /u01/app/oracle/admin/10gsb/udump
mkdir -p /u01/app/oracle/flash_recovery_area/10GPRI
mkdir -p /u01/app/oracle/flash_recovery_area/10GPRI/onlinelog
Prepare an Initialization Parameter File for the Standby Database

Copy from the primary pfile to the standby destination
[oracle@raclinux2 ~]$ cd /u01/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/db_1/dbs/
[oracle@raclinux2 dbs]$ scp init10gpri.ora oracle@raclinux1:/tmp/init10gsb.ora
