Where:

Observed on Standby database , although primary were able to transfer archives to standby but standby was unable to connect to primary to Fetch the Gap sequence

Analysis:

1. Verified tnsping , found to be working

$tnsping MISC
TNS Ping Utility for Solaris: Version 10.2.0.3.0 - Production on 27-MAY-2013 12:33:10
Copyright (c) 1997, 2006, Oracle.  All rights reserved.
Used parameter files:
Used TNSNAMES adapter to resolve the alias
Attempting to contact (DESCRIPTION = (ADDRESS_LIST = (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = mu-me01-003)(PORT = 1529))) (CONNECT_DATA = (SERVER = DEDICATED) (SERVICE_NAME = MISC)))
OK (60 msec)


2. Checked sqlplus <usr>@<TNS_Alias>/<password> , found to be giving error ORA-12520
Initially Suspected password file issue & tried sqlplus sys@MISC as sysdba or sqlplus system@MISC , but came across below error every time

$sqlplus ajay@MISC

ERROR:

server




Resolving ORA-12520 for sqlplus could have resolved issue for MRP0 also


Solution:


Tnsnames.ora changes done for SERVICE_NAME as below

MISC =
  (DESCRIPTION =
    (ADDRESS_LIST =
      (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = mu-me01-003)(PORT = 1529))
    )
    (CONNECT_DATA =
      (SERVER = DEDICATED)
      (SERVICE_NAME = MISC)
    )
  )


changed to

MISC =
  (DESCRIPTION =
    (ADDRESS_LIST =
      (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = mu-me01-003)(PORT = 1529))
    )
    (CONNECT_DATA =
      (SERVER = DEDICATED)
      (SERVICE_NAME = ISC)
    )
  )


where ISC is the db_unique_name or instance_name of the primary database

Verification:


$tnsping MISC
