Joerg, of course i was referring to manual standby, and yes you'll need to weigh up the cost of managing this yourself against the cost of automating it using dg, that said most se customers will be manually managing things like performance, alerts and so on and so on these days - now that the performance tab of em etc isn't available to them. I don't honestly see why a manual standby is such a big deal now oracle has largely abandoned making management functionality available to them.
