> Get the latest recovery th'h archive or what ever mode U are depending on
> Stop standby listener...this would make sure that no more archive from
Primary would come in
> Cancel managed recovery on Standby
> Shutdown Standby
> restart Standbu @ Mount Stage.
> Might open as READ ONLY to verify the latest data available on Standby
> Activate Standby
> Update Listener.ora/Tnsnames.ora on Standby and start the Listener for the
Standby...now a READ/WRITE Database
> Primary is never affected if U have not made your Standby Archive Location
as Mandatory
> U can now comment out the
log_archive_dest_2='SERVICE=STANDBY_CONNECT_STRING ' and other realted
   parameters for Standby services as log_archive_dest_state_2='ENABLE'
and/or log_archive_min_succeed_dest=1
