Use the foreignlogRecordSpecifier subclause to specify a set of foreign archived redo log files for use in RMAN operations.
Foreign archived redo log files are received by a logical standby database for a LogMiner session. Unlike normal archived logs, foreign archived logs have a different DBID. For this reason, they cannot be backed up or restored on a logical standby database.
A logical standby database creates foreign archived logs in the fast recovery area if the following conditions are met:
A fast recovery area is configured on the logical standby database.
n initialization parameters is set to
'LOCATION=USE_DB_RECOVERY_FILE_DEST' with a proper
VALID_FOR setting to receive foreign archived logs.
COMPATIBLE initialization parameter is set to a value greater than or equal to 11.0.0.
The semantics duplicate
archivelogRecordSpecifier except that the logs are foreign archived redo log files.
