And particular, the alert logs and drc logs from both databases at the time
of the switchover where you ended up with two standbys would need to be
looked at. That'll show what exactly happened.

Can you send the full set of steps, commands, show configuration and show
database verbose, for the broke configuration?

I just cant get it to work!
Everything in the DGB setup looked fine. Even got it checked by a third
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 standby database;
2. Rman into standby which should be standby – restore database;
3. Start recovery at end of restore.
