do some search on this forum, I already post a step by step from scratch for 9i and 10g. _____ From: Roger Xu [mailto:Roger.Xu@xxxxxxxxxxx] Sent: Wednesday, 06 September, 2006 4:33 PM To: Oracle-L@Freelists. Org (E-mail) Subject: how to manually create a 9i physical standby database Hi List, Does anyone have a script that shows how to create a 9i physical standby manually without using OEM or Grid Control? I went to a 10g Data Guard class and they only showed how to do it using Grid Control. Solaris 10 / Oracle9i Enterprise Edition Release 184.108.40.206.0 Thanks, Roger This e-mail is intended solely for the person or entity to which it is addressed and may contain confidential and/or privileged information.
