2764095 - Error when setting up HADR without an existing cluster ID database - SRS


  • When setting up HADR using response file, the DB you want to replicate has a longer name than <SID>, e.g. <SID>_db
  • So you want to know whether there is a response file parameter that will allow the use of a dbname that is longer than the cluster id
  • You may expect to config something like below in the response file,
    dbname  <SID>_db
    alias        <SID>
  • If just run the response file using cluster_id=<SID> and participating_database_1=<SID>_db, you may get the error like below.

 Error: Missing cluster ID database "<SID>". You need to specify database "<SID>" for replication.
