Goal

Before performing a switchover from an Oracle RAC primary database to a physical standby database, shut down all but one primary database instance. Any primary database instances shut down at this time can be started after the switchover completes

If dataguard broker is configured, the broker is able to handle this by shutting down ALL but one instance from the primary DB.
