Editing Dbvisit Standby Templates


Problem Description

Every time we create the standby database, Dbvisit Standby will have an option to save a template based on the configurations. Where is the location of this template and can we manually edit it like the DDC file?

This is valid only for Version 6.0 and Version 7.0 , since from Version 8.0 we use sqlite repository 


Dbvisit Standby saves the template info in a number of its repository tables inside the database (DBUSER schema). We strongly discourage manually altering the repository tables.

A template is not as "flexible" as a DDC file in a sense that it has to be valid to be used. A template records every single bit of information used to create a standby database such as all init database parameters, all database files names and types etc. Each time a template is used it is validated by running a complex piece of code to check for its integrity.

If you take the time to create and save a template, it can be reused each time unless you have done major changes to the primary database.
