Thanks for that. If I understand that note correctly, it only talks about the ability to see the backups taken from a standby in the primary location. Not the ability to take backups in the first place, or the ability to restore without catalog? It includes the advise in case of a restore to copy backups to the primary location and catalog them, which is exactly what we do when restoring a "lost" database without catalog connection.

Also it becomes clear that this has nothing to do with Seth's problem earlier.. false alarm..
