Strange error


Short note to not forget about it.

I have to investigate it more deeply and replicate it, but today I hit into very strange issue.
I have started a standby DB in read only mode, but unfortunately audit_trail was set to DB.
I have had a error that I could not open database in read only with that parameter.
I have changed that and after restart I have got information that my db files need to be recovered to be consistent :-(

Hmmm right now I'm waiting for a airplane but I will come back to that issue.

Update - Friday 13th :)
RTFM ...
It is a mixed environment between PA-RISC and Itanium and standby can't be open in Read Only mode - see metalink note 413484.1

Another example of very useful error messages !!!
