QUESTION: No: 1
Which two statements are true for Data Guard environments with multi-tenant databases?
A. DB_UNIQUE_NAME must be specified differently for each pluggable database within a multitenant
B. Each pluggable database within a multi-tenant physical standby database has a minimum of one
associated Oracle Net service name.
C. Each pluggable database within a multi-tenant physical standby has one MRP background process
running during redo apply.
D. A pluggable database within a multi-tenant standby database can have a different open mode than the
E. A pluggable database within a multi-tenant standby database can have a different database role than
the container database.
Answer: A, D
QUESTION: No: 2
Your Data Guard environment has two remote physical standby databases Client applications use the
local naming method to connect to the primary database instance.
You want applications to automatically connect to the new primary database instance in case of a
switchover or a failover
Which will fulfill this requirement?
A. Create a database service on each standby database that is started automatically by a trigger, when
the database rote is PRIMARY, modify the connection description used by client applications to include all
the standby hosts and connect to the database instance using that service name.
B. Create a database service on the primary database that is started automatically by a trigger, when the
database role is PRIMARY, modify the connection descriptors used by client applications to include all the
standby hosts and connect to the database instance using that service name.
C. Set the INSTANCE_NAME parameter identically on all databases; modify the connection descriptor on
client applications to include all the standby hosts and connect to the database instance using that service
D. Set the DB_NAME and DB_UNIQUE_NAME identical on all databases, modify the connection
descriptors on client applications to include all the standby hosts and connect to the database using that
QUESTION: No: 3
Examine the Data Guard configuration:
DGMGRL >show configuration;
Protection Mode MaxPerformance Databases
sheep-Snapshot standby database
cats-Snapshot standby database
Fast-Start Failover: DISABLED
Configuration Status: SUCCESS
You receive an error while attempting to raise the protection mode to Maximum Availability:
DGMGDRL> edit configuration set protection mode as max availability;
Error ORA-16627 operation disallowed since no standby databases would remain to support protection
Identify two statements that you can execute, either one of which will enable successful raising of the
protection mode to Maximum Availability.
A. DGMGRL> convert database sheep to physical standby;
B. DGMGRL> convert database cats to physical standby;
C. DGMGRL> edit database dogs set property LogXptMode= fastsync;
D. DGMGRL> edit database sheep set property LogXptMode= fastsync;
E. DGMGRL> edit database cats set property LogXptMode= sync;
Answer: B, E
QUESTION: No: 4
You administer a Data Guard environment with a primary and two physical standby databases.
One of the physical standby databases is used for reporting and is on the same host as the primary
The other physical standby database is remote, used for disaster recovery and REDO is routed to it via a
far sync instance.
Backups are offloaded to the remote physical standby.
Which three are true concerning the management of archive logs in this Data Guard configuration?
A. Archive logs on the primary database may be deleted once they are applied on all standby databases.
B. Archive logs on the primary database may be deleted once they are shipped on all standby databases.
C. The deletion policy for archive logs on the remote physical standby should be set so that archived logs
are deleted once they backed up at least once on the remote physical standby database.
D. The deletion policy for archive logs on the remote physical standby should be set so that archived logs
are deleted once they are applied on all standby databases.
E. Archive logs on the primary database may be deleted once they are archived locally to disk.
Answer: A, D, E
