I have two instance database Oracle, they are ORCL11 and ORCL10,.... I've configured them, it looks like correct. Then, I connect to replication user admin ORCL10

conn repadmin/repadmin@orcl10

And run SQL command in replication admin user ORCL10,...


Then, i connect to replication admin user ORCL11 to see gname status.

conn repadmin/repadmin@orcl11;
select gname,status from dba_repgroup;

It display gname = SCOTT_REPG and status = NORMAL,.... but if connect to replication admin ORCL10

conn repadmin/repadmin@orcl10;
select gname,status from dba_repgroup;

It display that gname = SCOTT_REPG and STATUS = QUIESCING, I think it does not have any impact, so I test my replication on ORCL10, for example :

conn system/ok@orcl10;
insert into DEPT values (101,'Financial');
select*from DEPT;

It works on table DEPT ORCL10 (1 row created), but when i switch to ORCL11 then run simple sql query :

conn system/ok@orcl11;
select*from DEPT;

it doesn't show anything, i've searched it on Google but there is nothing tutorial how to fix that, I think the problem is about how to switch QUIESCING to NORMAL mode at ORCL10. I've try this way to fix it :


But it still doesn't solve the problem,..... Would you help me to fix this problem ??? thanks !!!

This may answer the question (I don't know) but you are unlikely to get up-votes from the community unless you edit this answer to provide some explanation: Why does this work? Link to documentation? And so on. – Paul White Oct 1 '15 at 1:09
