    Talking How to deactivate/terminate/shutdown/disable dataguard

    Ok, after searching the web, there are millions and zillions of articles on how to setup dataguard. I am in the strange situation of having to shutdown dataguard (which I didn't configure) on oracle 10g.

    The project I work on has transitioned to another location, and they have dataguard running there, and I need to re-configure my DB as a testing/archive system. All of the articles say what to change the database parameters to, but not what they were changed FROM.

    Any help would be wonderful.

    Thanks,
    -Jerry

    HUH? If you can read how to SETUP dataguard then you know what to do to "turn it off" which is essentially not sending the archivelogs (depends on which way dataguard was setup but passing archivelogs is one way).

    Sounds more like you have a different requirement like:
    BRING THE STANDBY DB ONLINE SO WE CAN USE IT AS A DEV DB

    posting what your end goal actually is will always help.
    correct me if I am wrong. Maybe post:
    Primary DB = leave alone but want to stop sending to secondary
    Secondary DB = what exactly do you want to do with this guy??

    obviously extracting the pfile/spfile will show you what the parameters are currently set at.

    Yeah, that will work. I figured maybe mentioning dataguard might help get responses in the right ballpark too.

    As I said, I didn't set it up, I inherited it.

    The secondary machine will be re-purposed - probably for Velos or Medidata.

    Oh, by the way, it's 10g - which I think WILL make a difference....

    i didn't understand what exactly you thought would work for you.
    if you don't care about the standby and it will get deleted then on the primary you
    could just change the parameter: LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_STATE_2 from ENABLE to DISABLE
    that should take care of everything.

    If you want to further modify the primary then you could comment out all these parameters:
    LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_STATE_2
    LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_2
    FAL_SERVER
    FAL_CLIENT
    LOG_ARCHIVE_CONFIG

    If you actually want to promote the standby to an online state (for whatever reasons) then there are other steps involved.

    Sorry if I wasn't clear - it was a long day yesterday. However, you answered my unclear question, perfectly. That should work - Thanks.
