i got a primary database on a machine where the OS is RHEL 3 and oracle database software is 10gR1.
i've created a standby on a machine where the OS is RHEL 4 and oracle database software is 10gR2.

i've used rman to create the standby and before creating the standby changed the compatible parameter to (same as primary DB compatible parameter) in the standby pfile. i was able to mount and start the recovery process. i did a switch log on the primary and checked the status and error columns from v$archive_dest and it showed
status error and error given was ORA-16039: RFS request version mismatch.

then i shutdown the standby and change the compatible parameter to which is the compatible version for 10gR2. but still the same error was given when i tried a log switch.

Is it possible to have such a data guard configuration with different OS and DB software versions?
if so how to resolve the above issue of version mismatch?

Thank you.

In oracle 9i release 2 documentation, I read the following...

"The same Oracle software release must be used on both the primary and standby databases. The operating system running on the primary and standby locations must be the same, but the operating system release does not need to be the same."

-Hope this helps you.
