Dataguard Switchover is a planned role change. In other words, it is the transition of the live database to the standby role and the standby database to the live role. We may be doing Dataguard switchover for testing the functionality of our backup database, doing maintenance work in our live database, etc.Dataguard Switchover operation can be done with GUI interface such as Enterprise manager, Data Guard Broker or manually via sqlplus.
