Hi all,

I m a newbie to Oracle. While mounting standby database I am recieving the following error:
alter database mount standby database

ERROR at line 1:
ORA-00205: error in identifying controlfile, check alert log for more info.

I checked the alert log file but did not find the cause of this error.
The control file entries in the standby init.ora are proper. I also checked that these control files are present at the location specified in the standby init.ora.

Please provide some help on this issue. I am not able to find the root cause of the issue. Also suggest, how can this be resolved.

Shardul Banker.
