This is part two of a series of blogs by Marc Wagner of dbi services. The first blog looked at the benefits and ease of setting up Oracle SE with Standard Edition High Availability and Dbvisit StandbyMP on ODA.  This blog details (1) How to perform a zero-data-loss switchover to the standby database and switchback to the original primary database using Dbvisit StandbyMP, and (2) Perform a SE2HA failover and confirm the standby database can continue to be updated by Dbvisit StandbyMP.

Original blog: Can we benefit from Oracle SEHA relocate and failover with Dbvisit StandbyMP switchover?

I recently wrote an article about how to combine an Oracle SE2HA database running on ODA 2-HA and Dbvisit StandbyMP solution. See my article here: https://www.dbi-services.com/blog/combine-oracle-seha-on-oda-with-dbvisit-standbymp/. But are all those High Availability and Disaster Recovery solutions working together? Do Oracle SE2HA relocate and failover functionalities work in conjunction with Dbvisit StandbyMP switchover? Let’s see and try it!

Test environment

Just to recall my test environment

  • an ODA X5-2-HA with 2 nodes dbioda02 and dbioda03
  • an ODA X8-2M with node named dbi-oda-x8

The ODA X5-2-HA will host an HA database with db_unique_name DBISEHA, which I could relocate to the other nodes or benefit from the automatic failover in case the privilege nodes are crashing.

The ODA X8-2M will host a single instance database, with db_unique_name DBISEHA_STD, initially the standby one.

Read the in-depth full blog at dbi services to see how Marc performs a zero-data-loss switchover and an SE2HA failover using StandbyMP.
