Steps I have followed:-
Created a physical standby database by using
DUPLICATE TARGET DATABASE.
Then checked the log gap between these two databases which was fine and in sync.
After that standby database closed using the shutdown abort command.
Then when tried to open the standby in mount mode it was showing this error.
ORA-00205: error in identifying control file, check alert log for more info)
- Checked the alert log where in the mentioned path there is no control file but in
initSID.orafile, controlfile path mentioned correctly and which was different from what is showing in the alert log.
