Dataguard Across plataforms

Hi All

i'm planning to  move my Oracle 10g database from Solaris to AIX, i'm planning to do the following:

- Perform a Full backup
- Restore the backup on the AIX server.

my database will be different from my initial Full backup so i'l planning to sync that difference using dataguard; my real questions here it is.

Can i perform  dataguard on version oracle 10g where my source is a solaris and my destination is AIX?

If i need an other solution for that what can be ?

Regards.

I believe that you cannot cross platforms this way.  RMAN does contain a utility that will allow you to convert the data files between the 2 platforms, but there is no facility for the archive logs that would be required to keep the second copy up to date.

Here is the documentation on convert between platforms -> https://docs.oracle.com/cd/B19306_01/backup.102/b14191/dbxptrn.htm#CHDCFCIB

The entire chapter is relevant, but here is a direct link to converting an entire database -> https://docs.oracle.com/cd/B19306_01/backup.102/b14191/dbxptrn.htm#CHDEFAEE

You can use Heterogeneous Data Guard Configurations for cross platform or Export/Import Transportable databse or Oracle Golden Gate .

Here is the document which talks about these process.

here is a doc on Hertogeneous Data Guard has an example

Hi,

Physical replication such as dataguard must be same platform - same version. If you want to that that kind of no downtime migration you must do logical replication: GoldenGate or Dbvisit replicate.

Is your solaris on SPARC or Intel ? If it's SPARC, the it is same endianness than AIX. then you may have solutions sith very short downtime (transportable tablespaces).

Regards,
Franck.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

You can transport tablespaces across endian using the rman convert command.  That is documented in the links that I posted.  However, you cannot roll them forward.

My Solaris is Sparc

In that case my best options can be, perform a full export then import at last; configure goldengate that help me with the replication online

isn't it ?

johnsoneSenior Oracle DBACommented:
I'm not that familiar with Goldengate, but I would think that you could use transportable tablespaces, or restoring and converting a backup, to get the initial data load done.  exp/imp seems to be a lot of work to move a database between machines.

I had to take Golden Gate solution.

Thanks for all the advices.
