Oracle Error Message

ORA-16525: the Data Guard broker is not yet available

Reason for the Error

The Data Guard broker process was either not yet started, was initializing, or failed to start.

Solution

If the broker has not been started, set the DG_BROKER_START initialization parameter to true and allow the broker to finish initializing before making the request. If the broker failed to start, check the Data Guard log for possible errors. Otherwise, retry the operation.
