Dbvisit Standby was used to create and manage an Oracle standby database.

During an activation test the standby database was activated with:

dbv_oraStartStop.exe started on serverX: Wed Feb 29 16:30:18 2012

Activating means this database will become a Primary Database.
It will no longer be a Standby Database for evs on serverX.
Activation cannot be reversed.
