Any similarity to actual environments, actual persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental and not intended in any manner.

For the purposes of this document, the following fictitious environment is used as an example to describe the procedure:

Configuration: EECO1_01
Primary Database Name: EECO1_01
Standby Database Name: EECO1_02


After Switchover SRVCTL shows correct start option i.e STAT_OPTION=Open on New Primary.
But crsctl GEN_START_OPTIONS still shows 'mount'. We can check the same status in crs log as well.
