I believe Metalink Doc ID 413484.1 Data Guard Support for Heterogeneous Primary and Standby Systems in the Same Data Guard Configuration is the canonical reference for what configurations are allowed depending on the Oracle version.

Unfortunately, an AIX primary is only compatible with an AIX standby. On the other hand, a Linux x86 box can have a Windows standby database.

Is it correct to say that I can have Datagaurd where Primary is AIX and Dataguard (Logical) is Linux. Is this Correct to say that Physical Standby is not possible but Logical Standby is possible. Any caveat.
