A "fire drill" refers to the process of bringing up a database or application on a secondary or standby system for the purpose of doing some processing on the secondary data, or to verify that the application is capable of being brought online on the secondary in case of a primary fault. The FireDrill attribute specifies whether a resource type has fire drill enabled or not. A value of 1 for the FireDrill attribute indicates a fire drill is enabled. A value of 0 indicates a fire drill is not enabled.

The default is 0. The FireDrill attribute cannot be overridden.

Refer to the User's Guide for details of how to set up and implement a fire drill.
