DataGuard | How to Make Standby as an Independent DB?

Posted on 2011-09-14

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I had a primary database and two physical standby databases in a Data Guard configuration.

I already disconnected one of the standby from the DG configuration using the following...


-- on priamry
ALTER SYSTEM SET LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_STATE_2=DEFER;

--standby
ALTER DATABASE RECOVER MANAGED STANDBY DATABASE CANCEL;
Shutdown immediate;

What are the next steps to make this  as a single fully operational DB?


Thanks,
~sve

The only remaining step would be to activate it.

If I remember correctly you need to do:

STARTUP MOUNT
ALTER DATABASE ACTIVATE STANDBY DATABASE;
ALTER DATABASE OPEN;

From there it should be a separate database.  Be aware, that once you do this you cannot go back to a standby without totally recreating the standby.
