Goal

How to configure the FAL_CLIENT and FAL_SERVER parameters in cascaded standby setup.

FAL_SERVERspecifies the FAL (fetch archive log) server for a standby database. The value is an Oracle Net service name, which is assumed to be configured properly on the standby database system to point to the desired FAL server.

FAL_CLIENTspecifies the FAL (fetch archive log) client name that is used by the FAL service, configured through theFAL_SERVERparameter, to refer to the FAL client. The value is an Oracle Net service name, which is assumed to be configured properly on the FAL server system to point to the FAL client (standby database). Given the dependency ofFAL_CLIENTonFAL_SERVER, the two parameters should be configured or changed at the same time.
