Oracle Error ORA-16830: primary isolated from fast-start failover partners longer than FastStartFailoverThreshold seconds: shutting down

Oracle Error Message

ORA-16830: primary isolated from fast-start failover partners longer than FastStartFailoverThreshold seconds: shutting down

Reason for the Error

The primary database was isolated from both the observer and target standby database for longer than the seconds specified by the FastStartFailoverThreshold property. A fast-start failover probably occurred. If the FastStartFailoverPmyShutdown configuration property was set to TRUE, the broker will shut down the primary database in this situation.

Solution

Ensure one instance of this database is running and the database is mounted on that instance so that the broker may reinstate the old primary database.
