Hi,
I am on 11gR2. I have a physical standby database set up for a prod. I need to schedule backups on the standby database instead of primary. Can you please explain me in brief how to backup a standby database like whether should I cancel the recover managed mode, should I open the standby database?
I need to clone a database using these backups taken on the standby site.
(like duplicate database to xxx backup location '/backup/xxxxx';)
I dont want to use active duplication.

Any help in assisting me would be grateful.

Personally, I haven't done this, but the documentation seems to have a pretty good guide on how to do this:

Simple way,
shutdown the standby database
Take a cold backup
start up the standby in normal recovery mode and continue the recovery
using the backup, u can create a clone on any server.

This may require couple of hours downtime. Missed Recovery can be covered after the database is started.
.
Otherwise RMAN can be used as mentioned in the above post document. this needs a little more professional hands on exposure
