Hi Forum

I have a 11.0.1.6 dataguard in maximum performance mode.
I want to change the protection mode to maximum availability. I have changed the log_archive_dest_2 parameter as follow & created standby redo logs on both primary and standby. stdby is standby database unique name.

log_archive_dest_2=
'SERVICE=stdby lgwr SYNC AFFIRM
VALID_FOR=(ONLINE_LOGFILES,PRIMARY_ROLE)
DB_UNIQUE_NAME=stdby'

After bouncing the database, when I check my protection_mode from v$database, it still shows maximum performance.
Is there any step I have missed. Please guide.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

You need to fire below command on primary server. Make sure primary database must be on MOUNT stage.

ALTER DATABASE SET STANDBY DATABASE TO MAXIMIZE AVAILABILITY

Then OPEN the db and execute the below query to check db mode.

SELECT PROTECTION_MODE FROM V$DATABASE

Vish

Hi,

I have a doubt in dataguard.

what should be the status (nomount, mounted or open) of the standby database when we give the following cmd

ALTER DATABASE SET STANDBY TO MAXIMIZE AVAILABILITY;

And I tried with standby shutdown and keeping the standby in managed recovery mode. I have observed that archives are trasferring and getting applied but the protection level on the primary is MAXIMUM AVAILABILITY and on the standby MAXIMUM PROTECTION. Please clarify!!!

Thanks,
Suresh

SQL Reference
ALTER DATABASE page
Section maximize_standby_db_clause

Quote:
Use this clause to specify the level of protection for the data in your database environment. You specify this clause from the primary database, which must be mounted but not open.


The state of standby database does not matter.
I don't think the value in standby v$database is meaningful.

Regards
Michel
