We have a physical Data Guard environment. When checking the standby, a new temporary tablesoaces was not added to the standby (but is on the primary). I understand why it's not being automatically created on the standby. However, what's the best process to add it to the standby?

Thank you

Depends on what you want to do - if you are just checking to see if the standby can be opened (read only), and run a few sanity check queries, then you dont really need one.

If you plan on opening it read only for reports (or anything that might need to sort to disk), then the *definition* for the tablespace will already be there, so you can simply add a tempfile

Then yes, add a tempfile at that point.
