Using the Standby Database

Follow

A standby database can be used to create the target database to ensure that the data is same as the source database before the replication starts. 

The standby database can be created using RMAN or by using Dbvisit Standby

A point in time is chosen to activate the standby database so that this becomes a regular READ-WRITE database. 

In the setup wizard the option "resetlogs" is chosen as the instantiation method for both replication pairs:

Lock and copy the data initially one-by-one or at a single SCN?
(one-by-one/single-scn/ddl-only/resetlogs) [single-scn] resetlogs
What data copy script to create?
(dp_networklink/dp_exp/exp/ddl_file/ddl_run/none) [none]

 

The resetlogs setting will obtain the resetlogs_change# from v$database in the target database. This will be the point at which the replication will start from. 

With 2-way replication there is an additional step that must be done to set the correct SCN number for the second replication.

 

1. Obtain the resetlogs SCN from the target database:

SQL> select resetlogs_change# from v$database;
RESETLOGS_CHANGE#
-----------------
10892654

 

2. Edit the *.dbvrep script and change the word "RESETLOGS" to the actual SCN from the above SQL for the APPLY1 process by hand. 

SET APPLY1.INSTANTIATE_SCN 10892654

 

3. Run the Run *all.sh script as per normal and follow the instructions in the Nextsteps.txt

 

Example of using a standby database with 2-way replication

1. Create the standby database using RMAN or Dbvisit Standby.

 

2. Activate the standby database using the Dbvisit Standby activate command or with manual command:

SQL> alter database activate standby database;

 

3. Run the setup wizard as follows:
In this example the source and target databases are both called d112f. The source TNS alias is d112f_dbvisit210 and the target TNS alias is d112f_dbvisit230. The source server is called dbvisit210 and the target server is called dbvisit230.

This wizard configures Dbvisit Replicate to start a replication process.
The setup wizard creates configuration scripts, which need to be run after the wizard ends. No changes to the databases are made before that.
The progress is saved every time a list of databases, replications, etc. is shown. It will be re-read if wizard is restarted and the same DDC
name and script path is selected.
Run the wizard now? [yes] 
Accept end-user license agreement? (view/yes/no) [view] yes
Before starting the actual configuration, some basic information is needed. The DDC name and script path determines where all files created
by the wizard go (and where to reread them if wizard is rerun) and the license key determines which options are available for this
configuration.
(DDC_NAME) - Please enter a name for this replication (suggestion: use the name of the source database): [] d112f 
(LICENSE_KEY) - Please enter your license key (or just enter "(trial)"): [(trial)] 
(SETUP_SCRIPT_PATH) - Please enter a directory for location of configuration scripts on this machine: [/home/oracle/d112f]
Network configuration files were detected on this system in these locations:

(TNS_ADMIN) - Please enter TNS configuration directory for this machine: [/u01/app/oracle/product/11.1.0/db_1/network/admin]
Step 1 - Describe databases
========================================
The first step is to describe databases used in the replication. There are usually two of them (source and target); however, there can be
just one (when source and target is the same) or more than two (one-to-many or other complex configurations.)
Let's configure the database, describing it's type, connectivity, user names etc.
What type of database is this? (Oracle/MySQL/MSSQL): [Oracle] 
Please enter database TNS alias: [] d112f_dbvisit210 
Please enter SYSDBA user name: [SYS] 
Please enter password for this user: [change_on_install] ******
Please enter user with DBA role: [SYSTEM] 
Please enter password for this user: [manager] ******
Connecting to database d112f_dbvisit210 as SYSTEM to query list of tablespaces and to detect ASM (by looking whether any redo logs or
archived logs are stored in ASM).
Enter the Dbvisit Replicate owner and apply user (this user will be created by this script): [dbvrep] 
Please enter password for this user: [dbvpasswd]
Permanent tablespaces detected on the database: USERS.
Please enter default permanent tablespace for this user: [USERS]
Temporary tablespaces detected on the database: TEMP.
Please enter default temporary tablespace for this user: [TEMP]
Following databases are now configured:
1: Oracle d112f_dbvisit210, SYS/***, SYSTEM/***, dbvrep/***, USERS/TEMP, dbvrep/, ASM:NO, TZ: +00:00
Enter number of database to modify it, or "add", or "done": [add] 
Let's configure the database, describing it's type, connectivity, user names etc.
What type of database is this? (Oracle/MySQL/MSSQL): [Oracle] 
Please enter database TNS alias: [] d112f_dbvisit230 
Please enter SYSDBA user name: [SYS] 
Please enter password for this user: [change_on_install] ******
Please enter user with DBA role: [SYSTEM] 
Please enter password for this user: [manager] ******
Connecting to database d112f_dbvisit230 as SYSTEM to query list of tablespaces and to detect ASM (by looking whether any redo logs or
archived logs are stored in ASM).
Enter the Dbvisit Replicate owner and apply user (this user will be created by this script): [dbvrep] 
Please enter password for this user: [dbvpasswd]
Permanent tablespaces detected on the database: USERS.
Please enter default permanent tablespace for this user: [USERS]
Temporary tablespaces detected on the database: TEMP.
Please enter default temporary tablespace for this user: [TEMP]
Following databases are now configured:
1: Oracle d112f_dbvisit210, SYS/***, SYSTEM/***, dbvrep/***, USERS/TEMP, dbvrep/, ASM:NO, TZ: +00:00
2: Oracle d112f_dbvisit230, SYS/***, SYSTEM/***, dbvrep/***, USERS/TEMP, dbvrep/, ASM:NO, TZ: +00:00
Enter number of database to modify it, or "add", or "done": [done]
Step 2 - Replication pairs
========================================
The second step is to set source and targets for each replication pair. This is usually just choosing the first database as source and the
second one as target, but many more configurations are possible.
Let's configure the replication pair, selecting source and target.
Following databases are described:
1: d112f_dbvisit210 (Oracle) 
2: d112f_dbvisit230 (Oracle) 
Select source database: [1] 
Select target database: [2] 
Will be DDL replication enabled? (If YES, the script will grant more privileges to the Dbvisit Replicate users and enable database-wide supplemental logging): [yes] no 
Use fetcher to offload the mining to a different server? (yes/no) [no] 
Would you like to encrypt the data across the network (yes or no) [no]
Would you like to compress the data across the network (yes or no) [no]
How long do you want to set the network timeouts.
Recommended range between 60-300 seconds [60]
Lock and copy the data initially one-by-one or at a single SCN? (one-by-one/single-scn/ddl-only/resetlogs) [single-scn] resetlogs 
What data copy script to create? (dp_networklink/dp_exp/exp/ddl_file/ddl_run/none) [none]
Following replication pairs are now configured:
1: d112f_dbvisit210 (Oracle) ==> d112f_dbvisit230 (Oracle), DDL: NO, fetcher: no, process suffix: (no suffix), compression: no, encryption: no,
network timeout: 60, prepare type:resetlogs, data load: none
Enter number of replication pair to modify it, or "add", or "done": [done] add 
Let's configure the replication pair, selecting source and target.
Following databases are described:
1: d112f_dbvisit210 (Oracle) 
2: d112f_dbvisit230 (Oracle) 
Select source database: [1] 2 
Select target database: [2] 1 
Will be DDL replication enabled? (If YES, the script will grant more privileges to the Dbvisit Replicate users and enable database-wide supplemental logging): [yes] no 
Use fetcher to offload the mining to a different server? (yes/no) [no] 
Would you like to encrypt the data across the network (yes or no) [no]
Would you like to compress the data across the network (yes or no) [no]
How long do you want to set the network timeouts.
Recommended range between 60-300 seconds [60]
Lock and copy the data initially one-by-one or at a single SCN? (one-by-one/single-scn/ddl-only/resetlogs) [single-scn] resetlogs 
What data copy script to create? (dp_networklink/dp_exp/exp/ddl_file/ddl_run/none) [none]
Following replication pairs are now configured:
1: d112f_dbvisit210 (Oracle) ==> d112f_dbvisit230 (Oracle), DDL: NO, fetcher: no, process suffix: (no suffix), compression: no, encryption: no,
network timeout: 60, prepare type:resetlogs, data load: none
2: d112f_dbvisit230 (Oracle) ==> d112f_dbvisit210 (Oracle), DDL: NO, fetcher: no, process suffix: 1, compression: no, encryption: no,
network timeout: 60, prepare type: resetlogs, data load: none
Enter number of replication pair to modify it, or "add", or "done": [done]
Step 3 - Replicated tables
========================================
The third step is to choose the schemas and tables to be replicated. If the databases are reachable, the tables are checked for existence,
datatype support, etc., schemas are queried for tables. Note that all messages are merely hints/warnings and may be ignored if issues are
rectified before the scripts are actually executed.
Note the following assumptions are made in this wizard - which can be modified by editing the resulting script:
1. All replicated tables have a primary key defined.
2. All columns of the tables and all tables of the specified schemas are replicated, and if DDL support is enabled, whenever a new
column/table is added, this should be replicate as well.
3. If an apply conflict arises, the default option is to try again repeatedly, until a different option is given or the underlying issue is
resolved. 
4. If an apply conflict arises, no more data will be replicated until the issue is resolved or ignored.
You can also specify some advanced options:
1. Rename schemas or tables.
2. Specify filtering conditions.
3. (Tables only) Configure Change Data Capture; this does not maintain a copy of the source table, but logs all operations as separate
entries. This is useful for ETL or as an audit trail. This usually requires adding of new columns (timestamps, old/new values etc.) to the
target table. Dbvisit Replicate can create the target table with the additional columns during setup by selecting "ddl_run" in the data copy
section of Step 2.
Following tables are defined for replication pairs:
1: d112f_dbvisit210 (Oracle) ==> d112f_dbvisit230 (Oracle), DDL: NO, suffix: (no suffix), prepare: resetlogs
 No tables defined.
2: d112f_dbvisit230 (Oracle) ==> d112f_dbvisit210 (Oracle), DDL: NO, suffix: 1, prepare: resetlogs
 No tables defined.
Enter number of replication pair to modify it, or "done": [1]
Please enter list of all individual tables to be replicated. Enter schema name(s) only to replicate all tables in that schema. Use comma or
space to delimit the entries.
Enter the tables and schemas: [] scott.avi_objects 
Selected tables: SCOTT.AVI_OBJECTS
Add more tables or schemas? (YES/NO) [NO]
To replicate changes of PL/SQL objects in schema(s), please enter the schemas to be replicated. Note that specifying any entry will cause
additional privileges to be granted to dbvrep. Enter through a comma or space-delimited list.
Enter the list of schemas (PL/SQL): [] 
Specify rename name, filter condition, CDC/Audit/ETL for any of the specified tables (yes/no): [no]
Following tables are defined for replication pairs:
1: d112f_dbvisit210 (Oracle) ==> d112f_dbvisit230 (Oracle), DDL: NO, suffix: (no suffix), prepare: resetlogs
 SCOTT.AVI_OBJECTS
2: d112f_dbvisit230 (Oracle) ==> d112f_dbvisit210 (Oracle), DDL: NO, suffix: 1, prepare: resetlogs
 No tables defined.
Enter number of replication pair to modify it, or "done": [2]
Please enter list of all individual tables to be replicated. Enter schema name(s) only to replicate all tables in that schema. Use comma or
space to delimit the entries.
Enter the tables and schemas: [] scott.avi_objects 
Selected tables: SCOTT.AVI_OBJECTS
Add more tables or schemas? (YES/NO) [NO]
To replicate changes of PL/SQL objects in schema(s), please enter the schemas to be replicated. Note that specifying any entry will cause
additional privileges to be granted to dbvrep. Enter through a comma or space-delimited list.
Enter the list of schemas (PL/SQL): [] 
Specify rename name, filter condition, CDC/Audit/ETL for any of the specified tables (yes/no): [no]
Following tables are defined for replication pairs:
1: d112f_dbvisit210 (Oracle) ==> d112f_dbvisit230 (Oracle), DDL: NO, suffix: (no suffix), prepare: resetlogs
 SCOTT.AVI_OBJECTS
2: d112f_dbvisit230 (Oracle) ==> d112f_dbvisit210 (Oracle), DDL: NO, suffix: 1, prepare: resetlogs
 SCOTT.AVI_OBJECTS
Enter number of replication pair to modify it, or "done": [done]
Step 4 - Process configuration
========================================
The fourth step is to configure the replication processes for each replication. Although most options have reasonable defaults, manual input
is required.
Following processes are defined:
1: MINE on d112f_dbvisit210
 Not configured.
2: APPLY on d112f_dbvisit230
 Not configured.
3: MINE1 on d112f_dbvisit230

These steps are required after the d112f-all.sh script runs:
1) Create the necessary directory(ies) on the servers:
dbvisit230.avisit.co.nz: /home/oracle/d112f
2) Copy the DDC files to the server(s) where the processes will run:
dbvisit230.avisit.co.nz: /home/oracle/d112f/d112f-APPLY.ddc
dbvisit210.avisit.co.nz: /home/oracle/d112f/d112f-APPLY1.ddc
dbvisit210.avisit.co.nz: /home/oracle/d112f/d112f-MINE.ddc
dbvisit230.avisit.co.nz: /home/oracle/d112f/d112f-MINE1.ddc
3) Review that path to dbvrep executable is correct in the run scripts:
/home/oracle/d112f/d112f-run-dbvisit210.avisit.co.nz.sh
/home/oracle/d112f/d112f-run-dbvisit230.avisit.co.nz.sh
4) Copy the run script to the server(s) where the processes will run:
/home/oracle/d112f/d112f-run-dbvisit210.avisit.co.nz.sh
/home/oracle/d112f/d112f-run-dbvisit230.avisit.co.nz.sh
5) Ensure firewall is open for listen interfaces 0.0.0.0:7902, 0.0.0.0:7904, 0.0.0.0:7901, 0.0.0.0:7903 used by the processes.
6) Make sure the data on apply are in sync as of time when setup was run.
Scripts for Data Pump/export/DDL were created as requested:
/home/oracle/d112f/APPLY.sh
/home/oracle/d112f/APPLY1.sh
Create referenced database links (if any) before running the scripts.
7) Start the replication processes on all servers:
/home/oracle/d112f/d112f-run-dbvisit210.avisit.co.nz.sh
/home/oracle/d112f/d112f-run-dbvisit230.avisit.co.nz.sh
8) Start the console to monitor the progress:
chmod 0750 /home/oracle/d112f/start-console.sh
/home/oracle/d112f/start-console.sh
The above list is stored in /home/oracle/d112f/Nextsteps.txt.

 

8. Copy the DDC files and run scripts as per above and start the replication.
