I need a separate copy of my primary db to test an upgrade.

I have copied the standby and got it running on another box and successfully applied redio logs

however what I do - alter database activate standby database

results in

ora-01547 recover succeeded but open resetlogs would get error below

ora-01194 file1 needs more recovery to be consist ant.

what am I a missing here please

we have successfully switched over to the original standby a few times for dr testing.
