I am trying to figure out a solution to utilize NetApp utilities to setup a DR site for Oracle RAC database with ASM to replace Oracle Data Guard, which is currently being used. The database servers on both primary and DR sites are Solaris 10.
The primary site database on Oracle 10.2 RAC with ASM. The DR database can be on ASM or NFS, but I guess if using NetApp utility, such as snapmirror, the database on DR site has to be on ASM, correct?
If you have done similar setup, I'd appreciate if you could share some technical details with me.
ASM configuration info:
Two diskgroups are created on 10 LUNs. One for database files and the other is for Oracle FRA.
NetApp FAS3140 configuration info:
