Incorrect Standby archive Location when using Dataguard Broker in RAC

(Doc ID 2334360.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 15, 2018

Applies to:

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

Symptoms

When switching over using DATAGUARD BROKER in a RAC environment, the archived log gets written to local filesystem on one node of the standby db. It writes the archivelog file to $ORACLE_HOME/dbs. When the RAC instance is shutdown and restarted manually, it correctly writes to the ASM destination.
