Sun Cluster Geographic Edition Data Replication Guide for Oracle Data Guard

ProcedureHow to Validate an Oracle Data Guard Protection Group

Before You Begin

When the Configuration status of a protection group is displayed as Error in the output of the geoadm status command, you can validate the configuration by using the geopg validate command. This command checks the current state of the protection group and its entities.

If the protection group and its entities are valid, the Configuration status of the protection groups is set to OK. If the geopg validate command finds an error in the configuration files, the command displays a message about the error and the configuration remains in the error state. In such a case, you can fix the error in the configuration and run the geopg validate command again.

This command validates the configuration of the protection group on the local cluster only. To validate the protection group configuration on the partner cluster, run the command again on the partner cluster.

Before validating the configuration of a protection group, ensure that the protection group you want to validate exists locally and that the common agent container is online on all nodes of both clusters in the partnership.

  1. Log in to a cluster node.

    To complete this step, you need to be assigned the Geo Management RBAC rights profile. For more information about RBAC, see Sun Cluster Geographic Edition Software and RBAC in Sun Cluster Geographic Edition System Administration Guide.

  2. Validate the configuration of the protection group.

    This command validates the configuration of a single protection group on the local cluster only.
