Using XTTs in a Data Guard Environment (Doc ID 2853054.1)

Last updated on APRIL 17, 2023

Applies to:

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


This document describes using XTTs in a Data Guard/physical standby environment.  The physical standby database will have to be recovered via the primary database.  This procedure is written based on an environment with Active Data Guard. If no such license is available, please make adjustments to the procedure accordingly.

NOTE:  The use of block change tracking (BCT) on a physical standby database requires an active Data Guard license.

This note only discusses necessary changes from original steps outlined in V4 Reduce Transportable Tablespace Downtime using Cross Platform Incremental Backup (Doc ID 2471245.1).  Therefore, both notes must be used to complete this task.

NOTE:  It is highly recommended that extensive testing is completed before performing this migration in a production environment.
