NETAPP and Oracle DR

Hi ,

We are in the process of setting up a DR environment for our SAP and Oracle databases . The netapp and our architects came up with solution as follows .

1.Standby databases are built for all production databases.

2.The SAP file systems are replicated to the secondary site

3.The Oracle logfiles and controlfiles are replicated by netapp snap mirror every 10 mins interval

4.The database is recovered through recover standby database every 15 mins at standby site

5.Please note there is no data guard involved .

6.To test the failover , the mirror is broken .The standby controlfile is replaced with Production controlfile and Redo logs files.

7.The standby database issued a startup comnmand and it worked .

Would like to know whether the step 6 is a correct approach ? I tried to convince the architects that this will result in a very disastrous situation for us but none is listened to . Please can you help me in the Step 6 . should it work ? Or something the Oracle should worry about ?

    Hello Rajeev,

    we already discussed this here: dr-design-using-standby-database

    This seems to be the standard NetApp consultant story without respecting the customers request.
