Hello All,

Is there a similar note for Windows? i am trying to set up dataguard on a rac system, using 10g + windows 2003 + OCFS. i'm stuck on this portion:

**************************
8. After setting up the appropriate environment variables on each standby host, such as ORACLE_SID, ORACLE_HOME, and PATH, start the standby database instance on the standby host that has the staging directoryalter , without mounting the control file.

SQL> STARTUP NOMOUNT
**************************

What would the equivalent of this in Windows terms? Should i be running oradim for this?


Worst comes to worse...would the manual physical standby creation work for RAC as well?


tia

You'll have to create a Window's Oracle service with oradim and you'll need to set the appropriate environment variables with the set command.

Yup, that's what i did; i created a new init.ora for the standby based on the primary's, then added the dataguard parameters...however i keep getting "listener does now know of service" and "could not hand off connection" errors when trying to connect via sqlplus.


Below is my listener.ora(btw, i failed to mention that the primary and standby are on the same rac cluster)

Your listener.ora file doesn't appear to be correct. You've got LISTENER_1 yet have the sid list as SID_LIST_LISTENER_STANDBY. Did you use the same format as your primary RAC listener file ?
