My guess is the New Standby converted OK, but did not restart. I would Stop apply and and restart the database, then check all the status again.
select status from v$instance; select database_role, switchover_status from v$database;
SELECT NAME AS STANDBY, SEQUENCE#, APPLIED, COMPLETION_TIME FROM V$ARCHIVED_LOG WHERE DEST_ID = 2 AND NEXT_TIME > SYSDATE -1 ORDER BY SEQUENCE#;
You may consider adding THREAD# because of RAC.
SELECT MAX(SEQUENCE#) FROM V$ARCHIVED_LOG WHERE NEXT_TIME > SYSDATE -1;
Its also worth noting that you only need to run the queries on the Database in the "Primary" mode".
clear screen set linesize 100 column STANDBY format a20 column applied format a10
