Last updated on FEBRUARY 17, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


If the Primary and/or Standby databases are not registered with CRS, the Broker fails to restart the instance(s).



Starting with 12.1, Oracle implemented an enhanced API that allows the Broker to use the Clusterware to restart the instance after a switchover.
