Changes

A firewall has been added to the network between the primary and standby sites or already exists.  The firewall may be Cisco-based and have a feature called 'fixup' enabled which may or may not be configured fully.

Database auditing may have also been enabled or is currently in use per the initialization parameter AUDIT_TRAIL.
