RAC Database Not Accurately Reflect Instance_Name Parameter if pfile/spfile have instance_name value set (Doc ID 2287743.1)

Last updated on JULY 20, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 11.2.0.4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

If one enters 'show parameter instance_name' on a RAC database, instead of seeing current instance_name (for example: ORCL1), result shows database name (for example: ORCL) from all instances. The instance number is correct, but the instance_name is not. The instance name is correct when queries v$instance.
