Symptoms

When creating a Data Guard (Standby) Database with RMAN standby recovery can
fail under the following conditions:

1. Standby Redo Logs had previously been added to the primary database.

2. You are using Guaranteed Protection Mode or Instant Protection Mode (LGWR SYNC
attributes in remote log_archive_dest destinations on primary).

With this configuration, the 9i Data Guard database gets successfully created
but recovery fails with the following errors:
