    Hi

    Why dont you go for clustering?

    In clustering if your one SAP server goes down,the SAP services will automatically shift to other server and will continue to run with no downtime

    Hi

    Rohit is cluster will full fill your requirement

    little over of the what cluster IS

    =======================

    The primary purpose for a cluster is to provide high availability for applications and data in the event of a server failure. Failover is the term used to describe the process that occurs when an active node in a cluster fails and the clustered application(s) being provided by the failed node migrate to another server. In other words, when the active node for the application fails, a secondary node becomes the primary node for the application. This provides high availability because the user never needs to know the server went down. His interaction with the application continues even though it is now hosted on a different server. When the failed server comes back online, the application fails back to that server, making it the primary, active node for the application once again. Failover support not only provides high availability in the case of unplanned failures but is also an excellent tool to allow you to perform server and application upgrades without affecting service availability.

    Hi all,

    I dont think cluster is the solution for this. Because the requirement of DR server is different otherthan cluster environment.

    cluster is the concept to recover the primary database in hardware failures etc. And DR concept is for disaster recovery situations.

    Clustering concept is for quick resolution without any delay, only if your database is available.

    And steps to configure DR site.

    1) Install one DR server with same SID and same platform

    2) Take a full online/offline backup of primary database.

    3) Restore the same in to DR server

    4) Create standby controlfile on primary database and copy the same to DR

    5) Mount the DR database into standby mode

    6) recover the database, it will prompt you for next sequence of archive logs.

    7) Strart copying of archivelogs from primary to DR

    Let me know if any wrong from my side.

    Regards

    Nick Loy
