Data Guard Physical Standby - RAC Primary to RAC Standby using a second network (Doc ID 1349977.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 17, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 11.2.0.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

The primary goal of this how-to is establish a data guard configuration where the primary site is RAC and the standby site is RAC.  

 

Please Note: The cluster nodes each have 3 network interfaces,  1 to used for the cluster interconnect, 1 for the public network and 1 for log shipping purposes between the primary and standby sites.  These interfaces must be in place prior to starting the configuration steps detailed in this document.

These steps were captured on Oracle Server Enterprise Edition 11g Release 2 and will also apply to Oracle Server Enterprise Edition 12C Release 1.
This how-to assumes a RAC primary and RAC standby database have already been created.  It is focusing on building a data guard broker configuration that uses a network other than the public network for enabling the broker configuration and shipping of logs between the sites.
