What are the key differences between Dbvisit Standby version 5.x and Dbvisit Standby version 6.x?
The main differences between Dbvisit Standby 5.x and 6.x are as follows. These are all features/improvements in 6.x that are not in 5.x:
- Web based interface including built in scheduler and reporting.
- Significantly improved "Create Standby Database" features (CSD), which can now handle all possible variations and configurations of standby databases.
- No more limitations with Graceful Switchover (role reversal), which was not supported under Windows and ASM previously.
- Improved "add datafile" functionality. Removed limitations of adding only one datafile at a time. Dbvisit Standby will add all new datafiles to the standby database that are added to the primary database. All datafiles are supported including those in ASM and OMF.
- Better support for ASM and grid infrastructure.
- Support for Windows domains.
- Recreation of controlfile supports different primary and standby configurations.
- Support the management of archive log files in ASM (utilizing RMAN) on both the primary and standby servers.
- Many small improvements and bug fixes.
