Oracle Enterprise Edition (EE) / Standard Edition (SE) Combination with Dbvisit Standby


Problem Description

Is a combination of an Enterprise Edition as the primary and a Standard Edition as a standby supported by Dbvisit standby?

The DB version is Are there any known issues for such combination?


In most cases, the standby database server should be licensed in the same way as the primary database. From a technical standpoint it is possible to mix Oracle editions (i.e.: Enterprise Edition primary -> Standard Edition standby) provided that NO Enterprise Edition specific features have been used (e.g. partitioning). Care needs to be taken in accurately assessing this.

However, from a licensing perspective you should ALWAYS verify the validity of a mixed configuration (EE -> SE) with your local Oracle licensing representative.
