Graceful Switchover is a process which allows your primary and standby databases to switch roles. This could be a method that you perform as part of testing your Disaster Recovery (DR) hardware and DR plan. Some companies do the process a few times a year to ensure that it works.

Of course, when a disaster strikes you don’t want any data loss and you want things to go smoothly. Dbvisit Standby can perform a Graceful Switchover and allow your primary and standby databases to reverse roles in a controlled manner with zero data loss.

We'll demonstrate how to perform Graceful Switchover using the Dbvisit Standby Command Line Interface (CLI). If you have used Dbvisit Standby v7, you will notice that v8 has fewer steps involved to switch database roles and it is much easier. We take you through those steps using the CLI in the video below.

Watch how to perform a Graceful Switchover using the Dbvisit Standby CLI:
