Hi

I followed the Oracle® Data Guard Concepts and Administration 10g Release 1 (10.1) document on how to create a logical standby DB. ( chapter 4 )

1. I created a physical standby DB - OK
2. I prepared the init.ora file changes for the logical standby as documented
3. shutdown the soon to be logica lstandby DB
4. created a logical control file copy from the primary and transferred to the standby site ( into the control files destinations )

ALTER DATABASE CREATE LOGICAL STANDBY CONTROLFILE AS '/tmp/boston.ctl';

5. I mounted the standby with the nre control file - ok

6. I issued : ALTER DATABASE RECOVER MANAGED STANDBY DATABASE;

Its hanging indefinitely

I tried canceling it and issued :

ALTER DATABASE RECOVER MANAGED STANDBY DATABASE DISCONNECT FROM SESSION;

That seem to work , but then when I run the next command :

SQL> ALTER DATABASE ACTIVATE STANDBY DATABASE;
ALTER DATABASE ACTIVATE STANDBY DATABASE
*
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-16228: Insufficient recovery for logical standby

Can someone help me troubleshoot/understand the problem ?

Thanks
Orna

I could only guess because of lack of details provided.

>1. I created a physical standby DB - OK
We have no proof this was completed correctly.

We already asked about your init parameter.

I know

the strange thing is that my pfile was perfectly ok, it was just when I converted it to an spfile - it got distorted somehow

So when I verified my init.ora it was ok. it was just by chance that I took a look at my spfile.
Once I started with pfile and stayed with pfile all worked ok

Once I figure out why my spfile looks different then my pfile I will post a followup

Thanks
