Best Practice

Hello,
We are designing a DR solution using Oracle Data Guard 11gR2.


1- Physical Oracle Data Guard with Primary / Standby database.

2- Use Maximum Availability Mode.

3- Use the Observer for automatic failover.

4- Turn on Flashback databases.

5- Use the broker.

We only have site A and site B. The primary will be placed in the Site A
and the standby with be placed in the Site B.

The primary database will run on host 1 in the Site A. The standby will run
on the host 2 in the Site B.

The observer will run on the host 3 (Until now, we don't know where to
place the observer; in Site A or Site B) but it will run on one of the
application host.

Now, Questions;

1- After a fail over / switch over, will the observer point monitor
automatically the standby site or do we need to point the observer manually
to monitor
the new primary site?

2- Giving my configuration (having only 2 sites), What is the best place to
put the observer? What is recommended? I know that the best solution is to
have a third environment
but, in my case we only have 2. what are your suggestions based on your
real world set up?

3- Giving my configuration (having only 2 sites), What is recommended to
have a *HA solution for the observe*r , without the use of Grid Control?

Thank you,
S
