Re: Data Guard

Hi Wish,

I don't know excetly what you mean but if you want to use Data guard to make a stanby database on the other node. It's not wise to do that because you have 2 different operating systems. The both have other settings to run oracle databases.

Re: Data Guard


To be honest I prefer both nodes to be of same level for Oracle Dataguard. Also I have only Datagurad with Same version of OS and Patches.

It may work with different as the Oracle Data Guard doea internally (Switch Logs, rcp and apply logs) to keep it intact with database.

I recommend to have same OS and patch level.

Re: Data Guard

hi wish,

Normally ,you will need homogenous operating systems to implement data guard!!

Hp-UX 11.1 and HP-UX 11.0 may work but i don' tthink it will be a "supported" infrastructure...

hope this helps!

Re: Data Guard

Find the following lines from "Certification and Prerequisites for Oracle DataGuard" (metalink note:234508.1)

Primary and Standby Database must
- reside on the same Platform
- use the same Oracle Baserelease

Primary and Standby should have
- the same Patchlevel (eg.
- the same OS-Version
- the same Hardware Configuration

They use "should" instaed of "must" so I think it will work but not recommended.
