Re: flashback a physical standby database

I have no idea why, but I have not had to enable that in my standby's for it
to work. Maybe it is because you are creating a restore point while in MOUNT
mode and not OPEN?
As for the original question (I got over-anxious and didn't read the
requirements :) ). LogMiner or Flashback Query (assuming the data is still
in UNDO) would be your likely solutions to finding the issues.
