RFS request version mismatch [message #168364] Thu, 20 April 2006 01:20 Go to next message

i got a primary database on a machine where the oracle database version is
i've created a standby on a machine where theoracle database software is

i've 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.

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

Thank you.

No, they need to be on the same database version:

$ oerr ora 16039
16039, 00000, "RFS request version mismatch"
// *Cause:  A request to archive a redo log to a standby site failed
//          because the request was incompatible with the Remote File
//          Server (RFS) at the standby site.
// *Action: Verify that compatible versions of Oracle are running on
//          the primary and all standby sites.
