Please school me on Recoverpoint and Oracle lun to lun

Hello I am working on setting up a recoverpoint LUN to LUN replication for oracle and I am having a hard time with getting oracle to work correctly.

-In read/write mode I can get oracle up and working correctly etc

     Question: in read only mode should I still be able to sqlplus into oracle?

-Going from read/write to read - having the luns replicate and then going back to read/write so that we can connect our application to oracle causes oracle to break and for us to reinstall oracle from scratch.

     Question: what are we missing here, is there some other kind of config or something that needs to happen in recoverpoint before we connect to oracle?

     - instance is named the same

     - multipaths are named the same

     - we brought over the pfile

If anyone has any recommend pdfs or whitepapers etc to read it would be very much appreciated!

Thank you!

Hi quinc,

Are you using image access (Test a Copy) or image access (Test a Copy) in conjunction with a Failover as part of your testing?

Both will allow read/write access to the replica volumes and these are the supported methods for accessing the replica volumes and the database running on them.

I have only heard it called lun to lun replication. During the Oracle upgrade and reinstall I had to ask that it was set to read/write vs read only mode.  In read only mode Oracle cannot see the luns/multipath.

Is there anything specific that needs to be done with recoverpoint and Oracle 12c RAC ASM lunt to lun replication?
