The goal of this how-to is provide steps on creating a Global Data Services (GDS) configuration, with a 12c active dataguard.  

A Global Data Services configuration provides client access through global services to multiple databases configured in the catalog. Those databases can be single instance or RAC. 

A Global Data Services configuration and its global services are created and managed using the GDSCTL command-line interface.

The configuration is specific to Oracle Server Enterprise Edition 12c or above.
This how-to assumes:
  - the global service manager (gsm) software is installed in host aulnx13.
  - a catalog database (12c) is created, in this example, called gsmcat, running on host aulnx13, listener port is 12100.
  - an active dataguard has already been created: Primary database "PRIMARY1", Standby database "STANDBY1", both running on 12.1.0.1, running on HOST13 and HOST14 respectively.
     Listener port is 12101.
This document is focusing on setup the configuration and demostrate how the client connection use the global service.
