But just as last time we tried we got a message from broker saying cannot
switchover and primary was still primary but when I looked
then we had two standbys. Nightmare!
My question is why did that happen?
The standby/primary pair operate fine manually but I really wanted to use
My method to recover from this was
1. Connect to standby which should be primary. Alter database activate
2. Rman into standby which should be standby – restore database;
