Guys

Just a quick couple of questions

I am looking to create a readonly version copy of my live oracle database at present I am copying over the backup of the database via a script then based on a CRON job a script is executed at 05:00 am in the morning to restore then recover this takes time
my question is
1. Can I just recover using the archive logs from my live environment saving me the time to restore
ie
sqlplus /nolog
conn / as sysdba
startup mount
recover database until cancel
auto

because it is readonly do I need to create redologs?? and a tempfile??

btw I'm using Linux as my os


Any Help will be appreciated

Regards

Darren

From a quick Google, it looks like you can create a standby database on Standard Edition.

I've never used a standby database so I cannot confirm if this is accurate:
