BR*Tools Example: Performing SAP on Oracle Standby Database Backups

Set up a standby database as a copy of the primary (production) database and use it for full system recovery (disaster recover) and data corruption.

You can back up standby databases when they are either in an offline or online state.

When the database in online, the SAP for Oracle Agent determines the standby database mode by checking the database role and automatically disables the log switch operation.

The following table describes the supported device types for standby database backups.
