Hi All,

Our PROD system failed on Monday morning due to patch failure. So we switched over to Standby system.

We have applied the patches on PROD properly and now PROD works fine. But users have been using Standby database since 3 days.
Now we want to switch back to PROD.

The issue is archive logging is enabled at both PROD and Standby

The last arc number for PROD is 6944 and for Standby is 6675.

So i cant copy the arc files from Standby to PROD.

Is there any way i can get the data from Standby into PROD for the 3 days.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Thanks and Regards,
Shilpa

One option could be if you took database backup 3days before then now you can take incremental backup and apply that backup on your server.

One question I have is whether it was a switchover or failover process you went through. If you did a failover, it's pretty much one-way (unless Dreamz workaround works for you). You might be able to create a Standby database from a backup of the (current) production database, patch that, and then do a switchover. That would be, I imagine, the dataguard way.

Hello, Dreamz! I'm only describing a standard recovery from failover. After failover, two machines end up looking like this: The Primary machine with no database on it, and a Standby machine hosting the (new) primary database. To recover, you create a standby database on the Primary machine and then do a switchover.

Once that's done, you are back to "normal" with the Primary DB on the Primary machine and the Standby DB on the Standby machine. At least, that's my understanding of it.

Note: It's different than recovering from a "switchover", because there is no Standby database on the Primary machine after a failover. You are basically recreating the Dataguard environment with a Physical Standby database on the Primary machine, then doing a switchover so that the Primary database is where it belongs (on the Primary machine).
