we are running on oracle 184.108.40.206 are working on disaster recovery. as per plan we only copy over datafiles,redo,undo,controls ..except temp. when we bring up dr site up and query v$tempfile its showing all the temp files but it doesn't exist at the O.S level. why temp tablespace already pointing to those temp files?????
They exist because they were not dropped from the database.
You have 2 choices.
1. copy the temp files over with all the other datafiles.
2. Drop them and recreate. (one of the few cases where offline drop is OK ).
If this is a DR site, then what happens in the case of a disaster at the primary(say loss of power or worse (fire/water damage)? You won't be able to do the copy.
True disaster recover involves setting up replication (www.ixionsoftware.com), Data guard ( some data loss will be encountered). Advance Replication, Streams etc.. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages.
why would data loss be encountered with data guard
Depends upon the mode. Either physical or delayed logical.
But the more highly available modes where the logs are written synchronously, typically don't perform well. Hence not used or are disabled after observing performance. Then your back down to sending archived logs. Thus data loss of up to the capacity of your online redo logs. And possibly then some, since you may still be in process of moving the last archive log at the point of failure.
Data guard, is data protection. If the loss is acceptable then go for it.
It all boils down to how much data loss is acceptable. If its zero (0) then your basically stuck with synchronous writing of the redo log and poor performance. If some loss is acceptable then you have some options.
just add a temp file to the temp ts...straight out of the dg guide....
Add a new temporary file, for example:
SQL> ALTER TABLESPACE TEMP ADD TEMPFILE
3> SIZE 40M REUSE;
I'm stmontgo and I approve of this message
Can i still add a temp without dropping the original non-existent ones?
By the ways, redo TS also get so much big like TEMP, is it a good
practice or a must to shrink it before copying the files to the DR
what do you mean by redo TS?

Tempfiles are tempfiles, they are not used for recovery, hence not necessary for a backup.
The information of these tempfiles are still there in the data dictionary, so all you need to do is add the respective tempfiles (if the filesystems are the same on your DR ) or just drop and add new ones,
Creating a tempfile is very fast unlike datafiles, since they're sparse.
