Is that change in behavior documented? There's no mention of it in the "changes" section of But I did notice the few mentions of MRP now reference "Managed Redo Process" instead of "Media Recovery Process".

But the reality is that this seems more than just a minor shift in how MRP works. The lack of documentation for such a fundamental change is disappointing at best. Thankfully, I'm working on replacing ADG soon...

Thanks, Martin!
