Limitations of Creating a Database Shadow
Go Up to Creating a Database Shadow
Shadowing has the following limitations:
- Shadowing is useful only for recovery from hardware failures or accidental deletion of the database. User errors or software failures that corrupt the database are duplicated in the shadow.
- Recovery to a specific point in time is not possible. When a shadow is activated, it takes over as a duplicate of the database. Shadowing is an “all or nothing” recovery method.
- Shadowing can occur only to a local disk. InterBase does not support shadowing to an NFS file system, mapped drive, tape, or other media.
