Sometimes i have to recreate a table on the oracle standby database to keep standby consistent with the primary. It can be performed by DBMS_LOGSTDBY.INSTANTIATE_TABLE procedure. This procedure uses three parameters. These parameters are “Schema Name”, “Table Name”, “DB Link”.

I created a dblink that connected primary database with the user.
create database link stdb_to_prm connect to <schema> identified by <password> using '<TNS NAME>';

Then instantiated the table. (Remember STANDBY SQL APPLY is stopped.)

When i first made this process, i got following error:

ORA-16279: Supplied dblink must have CONNECT, RESOURCE, and SELECT_CATALOG_ROLE roles
ORA-06512: at “SYS.DBMS_INTERNAL_LOGSTDBY”, line 5359
ORA-00942: table or view does not exist.

As mentioned in the error code, i gave the appropriate privileges to the user on the primary database.

But it still gave the same error. I checked the privileges that i gave the user.
select GRANTED_ROLE from dba_role_privs where GRANTEE=<user>;

Why was it giving same error? While i was struggling, i tried to drop dblink and recreate it. That’s it. Problem solved. It is understood that in the process of instantiation of a table, reqiured roles must be given before creating the dblink.


  1. The schema_name used in creation of DB link...should be given with these previs.

Creating Multiple VLANs over Bonding Interfaces with Proper Routing on a Centos Linux Host

In this post, I am going to explain configuring multiple VLANs on a bond interface. First and foremost, I would like to describe the environment and give details of the infrastructure. The server has 4 Ethernet links to a layer 3 switch with names: enp3s0f0, enp3s0f1, enp4s0f0, enp4s0f1 There are two bond interfaces both configured as active-backup bond0, bond1 enp4s0f0 and enp4s0f1 interfaces are bonded as bond0. Bond0 is for making ssh connections and management only so corresponding switch ports are not configured in trunk mode. enp3s0f0 and enp3s0f1 interfaces are bonded as bond1. Bond1 is for data and corresponding switch ports are configured in trunk mode. Bond0 is the default gateway for the server and has IP address Bond1 has three subinterfaces with VLAN 4, 36, 41. IP addresses are,, respectively. Proper communication with other servers on the network we should use routing tables. There are three

PowerShell Script for Switching Between Multiple Windows

Windows PowerShell has strong capabilities. I have a separate computer with a big lcd screen in which I am watching regularly some web based monitoring applications. So I need those application windows switch between on a timely basis. Then I wrote this simple powershell script to achieve this. You can change it according to your needs.
