(Doc ID 1376709.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 13, 2011

Applies to:

Oracle Data Provider for .NET - Version: and later   [Release: 9.2 and later ]
Generic Windows


Attempting to connect to a standby database with SYSDBA privileges with a .NET application using ODP.NET returns the error:

ORA 1219 : database not open: queries allowed on fixed tables/views only

 as expected but then immediately closes the connection. Queries that are allowed on fixed tables/views are not possible and fail as the connection is no longer valid.
