I have a Data Configuration with Fast Start Failover enabled and the Observer running. I have purposefully shutdown my Primary database to see if the Standby would automatically be failed over to.
This does not seem to be the case.
After a several minutes I check the Broker Configuration from my Standby Target and I see
DGMGRL> show configuration;
Configuration - broker1
Protection Mode: MaxPerformance Databases: PRIMARYP - Primary database STANDBYP - (*) Physical standby database STANDBYL - Logical standby database
Fast-Start Failover: ENABLED
Configuration Status:ORA-01034: ORACLE not availableORA-16625: cannot reach database "PRIMARYP"DGM-17017: unable to determine configuration status
Q. Why has my target STANDBYP not taken over as the primary ?
any help greatly appreciated
Found the problem - did a clean shutdown of the primary, instead of a shutdown abort
