Hi,
I am using dbvisit6 to update 2 standby databases.
eg. SID1.env and SID2.env

If I issue a 'oraStopStart switchover SID1' and role has occured, must I manually update the SID2.env configuration file to change the SOURCE parameter.

Secondly, Do i need to disable any of the scheduled dbvisit tasks in the web gui before a switchover.

Regards
M

Hello M,

>>If I issue a 'oraStopStart switchover SID1' and role has occured, must I manually update the SID2.env configuration file to change the SOURCE parameter.
Yes you have to update SID2.env to update the configuration file and change the SOURCE parameters to point to the new host. You will probably also have to copy SID2.env to the new primary host.

>>Do i need to disable any of the scheduled dbvisit tasks in the web gui before a switchover
Yes we recommend disabling the scheduling of Dbvisit tasks in the web gui before switchover. After switchover you can enable the schedule again.

Kind regards, Arjen
