shutdown standby and then primary

startup primary and then standby

If you have data guard broker setup make sure its good after both databases are up.

sandeep.

wouldn't you want to shutdown the PRIMARY 1st, that way all redo,archive files will be transfer over to STANDBY.

some others steps to look at (maybe)

if you're doing a cold backup and using dgmgrl and fast_start failover.

dgmgrl > disable fast_start failover;
dgmgrl > disable configuration
dgmgrl > stop observer
dgmgrl > exit

do the backup stuff

startup the standby
startup the primary

start dgmgrl station
dgmgrl > enable configuration
dgmgrl > enable fast_start failover;
dgmgrl > start observer

watch out if you are applying patches too.

Please visit the following link for seeing what ORACLE documentation says on this:


http://download-east.oracle.com/docs/cd/B10501_01/server.920/a96653/manage_ps.htm#1007684


They have mentioned the following:

If both the primary and standby databases are offline, then always (if possible) start the standby database before starting the primary database

Thanks Anurag.

As you can see, oracle says "if possible" which does not imply "must".

Like I said, I have not seen any issues so far in method I have described before.

So it will be personal/business decision(unless oracle has better explanation on "if possible" )
