Hi experts I want to know if I can shutdown my standby db to start it with spfile without any problems. I have a dataguard environment running fine but I wanted to configure data guard broker during normal operation hours but I see now that the standby db is not started with spfile and so I can not configure the data guard broker on the standby db. I wanted to just do a shutdown immediate and a startup mount. I guess I have to issue the command: alter database recover managed standby database disconnect from session; to start the arch log to be applied..
Can someone advice me what is best to do in this situation?
