rman backing up standby DB
If you see below I am using rman to connect to stdby db but rman thinks it is connected to primary db.
(ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = 10.0.3.7)(PORT = 1521))
(SERVER = DEDICATED)
(SERVICE_NAME = stdby)
$ rman target sys/sys@stdby CATALOG rman/rman@CATalog

connected to target database: PRI (DBID=615014014)
connected to recovery catalog database
As you can this connects me to my primary database. Is it possible to use
rman to backup a standby DB.
Same as you would the primary!
Same commands as you would the primary!
Registered or not registered, that is the question
If primary is registered, then standby is also registered.
If primary is NOT registered, then you need to register the primary.
