ORA-10456: cannot open standby database; media recovery session may be in progress


Once while starting my standby database i found that database is not opening in normal mode. It throws the error-10456 :cannot standby database. 

On performing some R&D and googling comes to the conclusion that this error is generally occurs because a media recovery or RMAN session may have been in progress on a mounted instance of a standby database when an attempt was made to open the standby database. Hence to solve of this issue we have to cancel any conflicting recovery session and then open the standby database.

Here is the issue what i have experienced .

C:\>sqlplus sys/xxxx@red as sysdba

NOIDA          MOUNTED

SQL> alter database open;
alter database open
*
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-10456: cannot open standby database; media recovery session may be in progress

SQL> alter database recover managed standby database cancel;
Database altered.

SQL> alter database open;
Database altered.

SQL> alter database recover managed standby database using current logfile disconnect ; 
Database altered.

Hence, finally we solve the issues.


Enjoy    :-)
