New Technical article: Set Up and Manage Oracle Data Guard using Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c

Dear Friends,

I am pleased to announce that a new technical article of mine has been published on the Oracle Technical Network.

Set Up and Manage Oracle Data Guard using Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c

This detailed technical article explains the set up of Oracle Data Guard Standby databases using Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c, and their management, performance, conversion to snapshot standby, switchover, failover etc. The article also includes the improvements in Database 12c for managing standbys via Enterprise Manager using a new database role which is not sysdba.

The standby creation and management forms a part of base database management features that can be used for free, as explained in the Enterprise Manager licensing guide at 

For provisioning the Database software on the standby server via Enterprise Manager before the standby creation can begin, the Database Lifecycle Management (DBLM) Pack, which is a licensable pack, can be used.

Feel free to recommend to your colleagues to read the article, it also has been tweeted worldwide by Enterprise Manager in Twitter today.

My list of published articles and white papers is updated and can be seen at:

Nishit, I can only recommend Oracle University. Please contact them.

Hi Porus, Is it possible to configure OEM 12c to have some kind of dashbaord where you could see all of your data guard instances and manage them from there, instead of having to drill down into each instance to manage? Any links or tips would be appreciated. Thanks

Not possible out of the box. You need to create a special custom dashboard , possibly using something like Oracle BPM and Webcenter.
