Transition an Active Server to Standby Mode for a Distributed Database

The following provides instructions for switching to a secondary database.
This procedure assumes that your main database is online. If you are dealing with a failure of the main database, follow the instructions in Transition a Standby Server to Active Mode.
  1. On the application server, navigate to
    Remote Databases
  2. Select the database server you want to transition, and click
    Switch Host
  3. In the Switch Hosts dialog window, type
    Switch Hosts
    in the text box.
  4. Click the
    Yes, switch hosts
    button to commit the change.
    It may take several minutes for the switch to occur and be reflected in the page.
    If you used this procedure to recover from a database failure, you will probably want to set up a new standby server for that database. See Configure a Live Backup for a Distributed Database Overview for details.
