SCAN / DataGuard: ORA-12514 Error When Reconnecting To Instance After Startup

(Doc ID 1638605.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 21, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Net Services - Version to [Release 11.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


After creating a physical standby database using RMAN, attempts to connect to the standby fail with the following error:

RMAN-04006: error from auxiliary database: ORA-12514: TNS:listener does not currently know of service requested in connect descriptor.

This error occurs AFTER the standby database is shutdown during the duplicate database procedure. 

There is a static SID_DESC in the listener.ora file for the auxiliary database.



 This is likely a new implementation of DataGuard.
