Property Description
Parameter type String
Syntax FAL_CLIENT = string
Default value There is no default value.
Basic No

FAL_CLIENT specifies the FAL (fetch archive log) client name that is used by the FAL service, configured through the FAL_SERVER parameter, to refer to the FAL client. The value is an Oracle Net service name, which is assumed to be configured properly on the FAL server system to point to the FAL client (standby database).

Given the dependency of FAL_CLIENT on FAL_SERVER, the two parameters should be configured or changed at the same time.
