Property Description
Parameter type String
Syntax DG_BROKER_CONFIG_FILE[1 | 2] = filename
Default value Operating system-dependent
Range of values One filename
Basic No

DG_BROKER_CONFIG_FILEn (where n = 1, 2) specifies the names for the Data Guard broker configuration files.

Every database that is part of a Data Guard broker configuration has two broker configuration files, which contain entries that describe the state and properties of the configuration (such as the sites and databases that are part of the configuration, the roles and properties of each of the databases, and the state of each of the elements of the configuration). Two files are provided so as to always maintain the last known good state of the configuration.

If DG_BROKER_CONFIG_FILEn is not explicitly defined, then it is set to an operating system-specific default value at instance startup. The parameter can only be altered when the DMON (Data Guard broker) process is not running.
