RE: ORACLE LICENSING - DR SITES - HELP

A standby site, unless the licensing has changed receintly, must be licensed
if it is applying the logs (you could just store the logs on disk I suppose,
recreate the standby once a month or so and maybe you would be safe there).
This is because, for all practical purposes, the database is running....
it's just applying redo in a constant recovery mode. If that approach to
licensing is reasonable and right is another question.

Guys,

Our rep. says that Oracle considers "active" to be updating a standby =
database with logs on a regular basis.  Whereas, I consider it to be the
=
database being used by end-users for some business requirement.  What is
=
everyone's experience with licensing a DR site????


In this article it states Oracle does not charge for backup database =
server unless it is used over 10 days a year.
