STANDBY_FILE_MANAGEMENT

Property Description
Parameter type String
Syntax STANDBY_FILE_MANAGEMENT = { MANUAL | AUTO }
Default value MANUAL
Modifiable ALTER SYSTEM

STANDBY_FILE_MANAGEMENT enables or disables automatic standby file management. When automatic standby file management is enabled, operating system file additions and deletions on the primary database are replicated on the standby database. STANDBY_FILE_MANAGEMENT is only applicable to physical standby databases.

Values:

  • MANUAL

    disables automatic standby file management

  • AUTO

    enables automatic standby file management

Setting STANDBY_FILE_MANAGEMENT to AUTO causes Oracle to automatically create files on the standby database and, in some cases, overwrite existing files. Care must be taken when setting STANDBY_FILE_MANAGEMENT and DB_FILE_NAME_CONVERT so that existing standby files will not be accidentally overwritten.

If the standby database is on the same system as the primary database, then ensure that the primary and standby systems do not point to the same files.
