Steve, thanks for your response.

seq#117 was the last successful available log applied. There were no other logs to be applied. When I committed an insert statement on the primary db, I still did not receive the transaction on the standby db until I switched logfile on the primary db.

As mentioned earlier, whenever I cancel the recovery process, I've been getting
"ORA-16037: user requested cancel of managed recovery operation Managed Standby Recovery not using Real Time Apply"

Anyone experience the same issue on Linux AS 4.0,

Thanks. Received on Tue Nov 04 2008 - 11:00:18 CST
