Dbvisit Standby can automatically create the standby database. The standby database will reside on the standby server and is an exact binary copy of the primary database. The standby database only needs to be created once. After the standby database is created, Dbvisit Standby will automatically ensure the standby database is kept up to date with the primary database. Dbvisit Standby normally uses the network to transfer the primary database to the standby server to create the standby database. For slow networks or very large databases, use the transportable media creation method to create the standby database. The primary database will not be shutdown during standby database creation. Dbvisit Standby uses RMAN in most cases to make a backup of the primary database.
