Building a Physical Standby Database (01/14) – Install an empty database on standby

Go Back to Overview Page –Building a Physical Standby Database (00/14) – An Overview
Assuming the db_name is already there for the running primary database, so you only need to name db_unique_name for the standby database before installation. In this case, we have names initially as following:
# Initialization parameters on Primary DB
...
*.db_name='compdb'
*.db_unique_name='primdb'
...

# Initialization parameters on Standby DB
...
*.db_name='compdb'
*.db_unique_name='standb'
...


As we can expect, the first instance of the standby RAC database will be standb1, and the other will be standb2.

During the installation, please use the same $GRID_BASE, $GRID_HOME, $ORACLE_BASE, $ORACLE_HOME and diskgroup name with the primary database to maintain the same structure on both sides.
