database switch over using dgmgrl

Perform a switch over test:


ON PRIMARY DB SERVER :

SQL> select name,open_mode,db_unique_name ,DATABASE_ROLE from v$database;

NAME  OPEN_MODE       DB_UNIQUE_NAME      DATABASE_ROLE
--------- -------------------- ------------------------------ ----------------
ORCL  READ WRITE       ORCL      PRIM

ON STANDBY DB SERVER :

SQL> select name,open_mode,db_unique_name ,DATABASE_ROLE from v$database;

NAME  OPEN_MODE       DB_UNIQUE_NAME      DATABASE_ROLE
--------- -------------------- ------------------------------ ----------------
ORCL  MOUNTED       ORCLSTB1      PHYSICAL STANDBY


LETS CONNECT TO DGMGRL AND SWITCH OVER ROLES

DGMGRL> switchover to 'ORCLSTB1';
Performing switchover NOW, please wait...
Operation requires a connection to instance "ORCLSTB1" on database "ORCLSTB1"
Connecting to instance "ORCLSTB1"...
Connected.
New primary database "ORCLSTB1" is opening...
Operation requires startup of instance "ORCLPRIM" on database "ORCL"
Starting instance "ORCLPRIM"...
Unable to connect to database
ORA-12514: TNS:listener does not currently know of service requested in connect descriptor

Failed.
Warning: You are no longer connected to ORACLE.

Please complete the following steps to finish switchover:
start up and mount instance "ORCLPRIM" of database "ORCL"


ON OLD PRIMARY DB SERVER (ORCL) :

I have to start it manually coz dgmgrl was unable to connect to lsnr after role transfer.
