Oracle Database Errors or Warnings from Error ORA-16570 to ORA-16582

SQLServerF1

ORA-16570: database needs restart
Cause: The Data Guard broker operation required this database instance to be shut down and restarted.
Action: If DGMGRL or Enterprise Manager has not already done so, shutdown the Oracle instance and then restart it.
ORA-16571: Data Guard configuration file creation failure
Cause: The Data Guard broker was unable to create the configuration file on permanent storage.
Action: Verify space, permissions and file name as indicated by the DG_BROKER_CONFIG_FILE[1|2] initialization parameters and retry the operation.
ORA-16572: Data Guard configuration file not found
Cause: The Data Guard broker configuration file was either unavailable or did not exist.
Action: Verify that the configuration file was successfully created. If the DG_BROKER_CONFIG_FILE[1|2] initialization parameters were changed, ensure the file name on disk and the parameter value match, there is space on the device, and the proper permissions are granted.

ORA-16573: attempt to change or access configuration file for an enabled broker configuration
Cause: The operation was rejected because the Data Guard broker configuration file was in use. The attempted operation was unsafe while broker management of the configuration was enabled. For example:
– An attempt was made to alter the DG_BROKER_CONFIG_FILE[1|2] initialization parameters while the broker was running.

– Non-broker access (such as DBMS_FILE_TRANSFER) to the configuration files was attempted. See the alert log for additional information.

Action: Disable the broker configuration and shut down the Data Guard broker, then retry the operation. If the operation includes altering the DG_BROKER_CONFIG_FILE[1|2] initialization parameters, be sure that the new parameter values correctly specify the files at their expected location before reenabling broker management of the configuration.
ORA-16574: switchover disallowed when required databases are shut down
Cause: Switchover failed because either the primary database or the designated standby database were shut down.
Action: Ensure that the primary and standby databases are running and that primary database is shipping redo data to the designated standby database. Also ensure that that the designated standby database is applying the redo data received from the primary database.
ORA-16575: request terminated at broker discretion
Cause: This error was returned when the broker terminated a command because it was processing a failover command.
Action: Wait for failover to complete and then retry the command.

ORA-16576: failed to update Data Guard configuration file
Cause: A failure was encountered while the broker was updating the Data Guard broker configuration file on permanent storage.
Action: Verify space, permissions and file name as indicated by the DG_BROKER_CONFIG_FILE[1|2] initialization parameters.
ORA-16577: corruption detected in Data Guard configuration file
Cause: The Data Guard broker detected errors while loading the configuration file.
Action: Verify space, permissions and file name as indicated by the DG_BROKER_CONFIG_FILE[1|2] initialization parameters. Contact Oracle Support Services.
ORA-16578: failed to read Data Guard configuration file
Cause: A failure was encountered while the broker was reading the configuration file on permanent storage.
Action: Verify space, permissions and file name as indicated by the DG_BROKER_CONFIG_FILE[1|2] initialization parameters.
ORA-16582: cannot change instance-specific property
Cause: An attempt was made to change an instance-specific property for a database that had more than one instance.
Action: Retry the command and identify a specific instance whose property value is to be changed.
