Bother! This is one of these questions where the answer seems simple enough, but there are those who want confirmation from a wider audience. So, here is the environment: Oracle Clinical 4.5.3 (yes old)
Solaris 9

The above is running at a client location and we need to move it into our data center with the minimum amount of downtime possible. What is being proposed is:

OC 4.5.3 on VMWARE, using the physical to virtual method RDBMS
Solaris 9 running in a branded zone on top of a Solaris 10 base. And using Data Guard with real time apply to keep our copy of the database in sync with the clients till we gracefully switch over.

So the questions:

  1. Has anyone ever user Data Guard for this purpose with OC? There is next to nothing on OTS/OTN about OC and DG until OC 5 where they talk about Active data guard.
  2. Has anyone ever run Oracle RDBMS in a Solaris branded zone?? Problems? And have you tried running more than one instance within a branded zone?

If you've got any information please send off-list to<>.

Thanks all in advance.
