  • Multiple standby databases for SQL Server are not supported in the current release.

  • Dbvisit Standby currently only supports ipv4, not ipv6.

  • Dbvisit Standby includes Oracle 12.2 Instant Client libraries by default. If your system has a different version of Oracle installed, it is possible under some rare circumstances for a library version conflict to occur. If you experience any errors similar to "PRKN-1008: Unable to load the shared library orasrvmhas12.dll", you can usually resolve them easily by renaming this library in the dbvisit/standby folder to "orasrvmhas12.dll.12.2" or by using replacing the Instant Client libraries in $DBVISIT_BASE/standbymp/oracle or $DBVISIT_BASEdbvisit/standbymp/oracle/lib (depending on your operating system).
