ora-16467: switchover target is not synchronized

Quick post about how I fixed ORA-16467 today.

After successfully running a switchover verify command, like below:

alter database switchover to dbname verify;

I end up getting an ORA-16467 error !

Checking the Data Guard config I realised the config LOG_ARCHIVE_CONFIG was missing 😦

I fixed this config and switchover went as expected !

This was an Oracle 12.1 db.
