    Unanswered: Building Standby system

    Is it possible to physically copy the database containers to other system as we can do it in Oracle(after making the tablespace to backup mode) to build the stand by system.I am looking for an option of building the stanby system rather than using the backup restore option.

    You have to put the database in write suspend mode (set write suspend) while you copy the containers (and the db information, but not the instance info), and then issue an initdb command on the standby to be able to use it. See the Command Reference manual.

    There is not much benefit of doing this (compared to backup/restore) unless you use a split mirror or snapshot of the disk.
