RE: DB_FILE_NAME_CONVERT issue

If you have a proper OFA setup then the problem is not to big. The syntax is
db_file_name_convert=('/vobs/oracle/dbs','/fs2/oracle/stdby') log_file_name_convert=('/vobs/oracle/dbs','/fs2/oracle/stdby')

where you are changing files that are in /vobs/oracle/dbs on prod to
/fs2/oracle/stdby/ on for the standby.

 Oracle suggest that should cover most of your files and the other can be renamed using alter database rename file syntax

Hi,

I am not using RMAN, This is what I try to do.

I try to create standby database manually

  1. Copy all datafiles to new location (so call standby location)
  2. create initstandby.ora ("almost" the same with the production) 2.a. DB_FILE_NAME_CONVERT = (production path, standby path) is one of them 2.b. let oracle know where is your initstandby.ora
  3. alter database create standby controlfile as 'standbycontrol.ctl';
  4. startup nomount pfile = where is your initstandby.ora
  5. alter database mount standby database;
  6. recover standby database; <- this will apply daily archived log, make sure your standby up to date.
  7. shutdown; <- never open this database

The problem is I don't know how to let Oracle know that my production datafile paths are more than one.
I think Oracle 9i can do that with DB_FILE_NAME_CONVERT (para1, para2, para3, para4).

I Don't think is very funny if I have to rename all my production data files before I create standby control file. :(

Thanks

Sinardy

Hi,

I don't know the syntax you are looking for but you could explicitly rename every file in your RMAN script (set newname for datafile command)

Hi guys,

I try to create standby database and my datafile are all over my hard disk, what should I do to my DB_FILE_NAME_CONVERT to let my standby database know this issue ?

example

/prod_data1/system01.dbf
/prod_data2/user01.dbf
/prod_data3/rbs01.dbf

my standby datafile

/standby_data1/system01.dbf
/standby_data1/user01.dbf
/standby_data2/rbs01.dbf

I try this idiot way but there are no such parameters in v$parameter :+)

DB_FILE_NAME_CONVERT1 = (/prod_data1, /standby_data1)
DB_FILE_NAME_CONVERT2 = (/prod_data2, /standby_data1)
DB_FILE_NAME_CONVERT3 = (/prod_data3, /standby_data2)


Thanks so much.

Oh by the way I am using 8i

Sinardy
