The ONLY way I know to place the database in standby mode to do it as part of the restore.  You must do the RESTORE WITH STANDBY option when you restore the database; not after the database is already restored.

The primary is being accessed by users. Therefore it not switched over

In oracle , we can put the STANDBY database on Managed Recovery mode and take it off from Managed recovery mode.

Is there a way to find what mode is the database ON and switch to standby mode

Thanks
