Hi,

Is it possible to create physical standby database with diff file structure than Master(Primary) database? For example i have master database files spread over two volumes /u1/orcl/oradata/ and u2/orcl/oradata/ and standby database has only one volumn /u1/orcl/oradata.

If yes then what's going to happend if I add a new datafile in Master database in /u2 volumne how it going to work.
Has got to do something with INIT.ora parameter on Standby?

Thanks
Manish

Yes it's possible. You'll need to specify DB_FILE_NAME_CONVERT.

mkdir -p /u2/orcl
ln -s /u1/orcl/oradata /u2/orcl/oradata

Hi,
Do i need to create a link for the volumn? Shouldn't DB_FILE_NAME_CONVERT should work?

Thanks

Hi

As said here above appropriate configuration of DB_FILE_NAME_CONVERT is what you are looking for.
You may want to consider the initialization parameter standby_file_management as well.
