Applies to:Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 188.8.131.52 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
This note outlines the required steps to create a physical standby database in Mixed environment using 11g RMAN Active Duplicate.
You can configure cross platform standby database using below Options:
I) Using RMAN Active database duplicate command starting from 11g onwards. Backup-based duplication will only work if we have same file system structure/backup available on sbt device.
II) Take online backup using RMAN/Traditional method & restore it on standby site.
II) Restore the offline backup of database.
