Cloning Oracle Home, moving standby databases to new home on new machine
Date: Sat, 31 May 2008 00:41:10 +0100
I'm due to apply a patch to a RAC primary, and single instance standby 10.1.0.5, Solaris 9. I've just this (well yesterday now) afternoon discovered that the standby is sharing an Oracle Home with 2 other production standbys, which we cannot patch at the moment.
The plan is to clone the Oracle Home (well documented), and move the the 2 databases across to the new home.
I think moving the standbys should be straightforward, I do not believe I will have to recreate the control files. Though feel free to correct me.
Things to look out for (my list)
scripts which hardcode the Oracle Home (none I hope)
Is there anything I have overlooked? I'm a bit concerned, a strings on the standby control files come up with references to previous standby control file names in the existing oracle home? Anyone know anything about this?
