i'm planning to create a dataguard using Oracle 10.2.0.5 my primary database size is 3T, so to move backup information from my primary to my new standby; i'm planning to use 4T USB3 external disk, because by network will be slowly and painful.
What i'm not sure is if i have a time limit to restore my new standby and start recovering and applying archives.
If 14 hours after my full backup i restore my database on my new standby, it will be able to perform the recovering and applying archives? will be a 14 hours of difference, i don't care if the process take a week to be sync but i 'm not sure if standby will be able to do this with that difference
The Archives has a expiration ? i mean expire after X time or depends of the volume of the information
Other option is after i recover the new standby i just create a backup of the missing sequence and that backup i can transfer by network since will be much smaller
Any suggestion will be helpful
