Convert Oracle standalone to clustered setup

I have just recently build 2 separate oracle servers as standalone v11g R2.

To avoid any rebuilds, can I  convert them to Primary and Secondary Server as a cluster. Making it Active and Passive Servers

Node 1 (active)  <========Sync=======>Node 2(passive)

We do not want to use RAC software.

Please assist with the steps,

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I believe that what you are asking for is what is called a physical standby.  As for steps, I use the documentation when building one.  The steps there are pretty good and outline the different options on how to build it.  The documentation for a physical standby is here -> http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/server.112/e41134/create_ps.htm#SBYDB00200

I suggest reading more of the documentation to familiarize yourself with standbys and how they operate and not just try to read the doc and build one.
