Default Must db_name be part of the DDC file filename?

Hi,
a client of mine has a setup with one primary and two standby databases and is asking if it is safe to rename the DDC part of the DDC file filename.

Must db_name be part of the filename?
Are there any consequences to consider by renaming the files on a up and running system? (apart from altering cron jobs etc)

Cheers,
Gabrio

Most Dbvisit Standby commands require the DDC. In most cases this is the same as the database name or ORACLE_SID. The DDC refers to the DDC file which is in the form: dbv_DDC.env and contains the Dbvisit
Standby settings for a particular primary and standby configuration.

The DDC and the ORACLE_SID (or db_name) can be different. The ORACLE_SID is a variable setting contained within the DDC file and is not linked to the DDC name. However in most cases the DDC and the ORACLE_SID are the same.
Example: If the database name (or ORACLE_SID) is orcl, then the DDC is orcl and the DDC file is dbv_orcl.env.

There are no consequences to renaming the DDC file on an up and running system apart from altering the cron jobs.

Kind regards,
