NOTE: In the images and/or the document content below, the user information and environment data used represents
fictitious data from the Oracle sample schema(s), Public Documentation delivered with an Oracle database product or
other training material. 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:

Primary: DB Name: DGA24L
Standby: DB Unique Name: DGA24LPS



If the setting of dataguard related parameter is different between database and the broker, when doing the show configuration within DGMGRL, the following error will appear:

DGMGRL> show configuration;
Name: DGA24L
Enabled: YES
Protection Mode: MaxPerformance
Fast-Start Failover: DISABLED
DGA24L - Primary database
DGA24LPS - Physical standby database

Current status for "DGA24L":
Warning: ORA-16608: one or more databases have warnings

When showing the database in verbose:

DGMGRL> show database verbose 'DGA24L';

Name: DGA24L
Enabled: YES
Intended State: ONLINE

LogXptMode = 'ARCH'
Dependency = ''
DelayMins = '0'
Binding = 'OPTIONAL'
StatusReport = '(monitor)'
InconsistentProperties = '(monitor)'
InconsistentLogXptProps = '(monitor)'
AlternateLocation = ''
LogArchiveTrace = '513'
LogArchiveFormat = '%t_%s_%r.dbf'
LsbyMaxSga = '0'
LsbyMaxServers = '0'
LatestLog = '(monitor)'
TopWaitEvents = '(monitor)'

Current status for "DGA24L":
Warning: ORA-16792: configuration property value is inconsistent with database setting

16792, 0000, "configuration property value is inconsistent with database setting"
// *Cause: The values of one or more configuration properties were
// inconsistent with database in-memory settings or server parameter
// file settings. This may happen by altering initialization
// parameters directly instead of altering property values using Data
// Guard broker.
// *Action: Query property the InconsistentProperties on the database or check
// the Data Guard broker log to find which properties are set
// inconsistently. Reset these properties to make them consistent
// with the database settings. Alternatively, enable the database
// or the entire configuration to allow the configuration property
// settings to be propagated to to the initialization parameters.

There can also be ORA-16714 reported which has the same Cause and Fix:

ORA-16714: the value of property string is inconsistent with the database setting
