    Unanswered: Required ASM procedures for DR testing.

    Source database system is running on 10gR2 AIX host in Site A with 10gR2 ASM storage option using ASMLib. I am going to replicate the source database data (site A) on this host to an associated remote site B, Site B BCV storage via EMC SRDF/A. I need to perform DR testing based on single instance database.

    Can any one let me know the ASM required procedures on the target host.

    Thanks in advance.

    Please proceed to do so.
    Oracle RDBMS does not know or care about underlying file system; ASM or not.

    I just wanted to know are there any special steps required to configure

    I just wanted to know are there any special steps required to configure in ASM procedures while DR testing for BCV.

    Thumbs down Is there a parrot somewhere?

    Repeating the same identical words from your initial post does not provide any additional or useful information.

    As anacedent indicated, Oracle does not know or care about the file system.

    On the other hand, BCV and SRDF/A are hardware remote mirroring software and therefore you may want to better post your storage questions in the corresponding EMC forum.


    PS: If you actually did mirror the database and related file ASM disk using BCV and SDRF/A, testing is just making sure the DR instance is identical to the source instance and functions the same.
