Oracle Database Replication

I am new to Oracle.
I want to do Database Replication. I am using Oracle 10g/11g, Both of my servers in same network. Can anyone help me by telling the steps of Oracle Database replication? I downloaded Oracle 10g from the oracle site and installed in two servers. It seems to work well without issues. How i can perform Database Replication in this scenario.

You also need to be aware of licensing.  Some replication features are not included with the basic license.

Your specific requirements will drive the choice you make.  Do you need two-way replication of just for fail over?

Fail over is called Dataguard.

I'm currently using Streams Replication and am much happier with it than I was with multi-master replication.

It is the same architecture that Active Dataguard is built on.

The docs for it:

As far as a step-by-step guide:  Good luck.  Every database and situation is different.  What works from one, may not work for another.

Since you are new to Oracle and replication is a pretty advanced topic, I would suggest hiring a local consultant or take some training.

If you are new to Oracle, why are you using 10g/11g?!
Start over and get yourself 12c ;-)

Above all, keep in mind that some features and/or options including Replication are deprecated:

In general there are 2 "main" roads you can take regarding replication (whereas it also depends on Oracle version/edition if you're good to use replication features within productive environments):
1. you stick to Oracle tools like Golden Gate
2. use 3rd party tools, e.g. from

I agree with Geert and Alexander, join the 21st century and install at least version 11g.

Then, Read The Fine Manual: Oracle® Database Advanced Replication
