Symptoms

RMAN incremental backups can be used to synchronize a physical standby database with the primary database. Using the RMAN BACKUP INCREMENTAL FROM SCN command, you can create a backup on the primary database that starts at the standby database's current SCN, which can then be used to roll the standby database forward in time.

However; in some cases the RECOVER DATABASE NOREDO command does not apply the incremental changes to the standby database and it just completes in few seconds.

RMAN> RECOVER DATABASE NOREDO;
