Oracle Database Errors or Warnings from Error ORA-16003 to ORA-16013

SQLServerF1

ORA-16003: standby database is restricted to read-only access
Cause: To ensure its integrity, a standby database can only be opened for read-only access.
Action: Re-issue the ALTER DATABASE OPEN specifying READ ONLY.
ORA-16004: backup database requires recovery
Cause: The control file is for a backup database which requires recovery, and cannot be opened for read-only access by this instance.
Action: Perform the necessary recovery and re-open for read-only access.
ORA-16005: database requires recovery
Cause: The database requires recovery, and therefore cannot be opened for read-only access by this instance.
Action: Perform the necessary recovery and re-open for read-only access.

ORA-16006: audit_trail destination incompatible with database open mode
Cause: The audit_trail initialization parameter was set to “DB” (or TRUE), which is incompatible with a database opened for read-only access.
Action: When the database is opened for read-only access, the audit_trail initialization parameter can only be set to “OS” or “NONE” (FALSE).
ORA-16007: invalid backup control file checkpoint
Cause: The backup control file being opened for read-only access does not contain a valid control file checkpoint. Therefore the database cannot be opened for read-only access.
Action: First open the database for read-write access which will result in valid control file checkpoint. Then re-open the database for read-only access.
ORA-16008: indeterminate control file checkpoint
Cause: The control file for the database being opened for read-only access was created via CREATE CONTROLFILE. Therefore a control file checkpoint could not be calculated and the database cannot be opened for read-only access.
Action: First open the database for read-write access which will result in valid control file checkpoint. Then re-open the database for read-only access.

ORA-16009: remote archive log destination must be a STANDBY database
Cause: The database associated with the archive log destination service name is other than the required STANDBY type database. Remote archival of redo log files is not allowed to non-STANDBY database instances.
Action: Take the necessary steps to create the required compatible STANDBY database before retrying the ARCHIVE LOG processing.
ORA-16011: Archivelog Remote File Server process in Error state
Cause: The archivelog remote file server (RFS) process at the specified standby database site has experienced an unrecoverable error and is unable to receive further archive log data.
Action: Correct the problem at the standby database site.
ORA-16012: Archive log standby database identifier mismatch
Cause: The database identifiers of the Primary and Standby database do not match. Remote archival of redo log files is not allowed to incompatible STANDBY database instances.
Action: Take the necessary steps to create the required compatible STANDBY database before retrying the ARCHIVE LOG processing.
ORA-16013: log string sequence# string does not need archiving
Cause: An attempt was made to archive the named file manually, but the file did not require archiving. The file had previously been successfully archived.
