Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version to [Release 10.2 to 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The management of temporary tablespaces and tempfiles in an environment where you want to maintain a consistent configuration across the Primary and Standby sites.

The addition of temporary files to TEMP tablespaces in the primary site is not handled automatically through the normal redo apply mechanisms in the same way as regular datafiles if the parameter standby_file_management is set to AUTO.  The DBA must manually synchronised the primary and standby tempfile configuration if they require both the sites to be the same.

Note: tempfiles are established during an RMAN duplicate operation, this document details the process for managing tempfiles that are added to environments only after the standby has been built and is running.
