ORA-16571: Data Guard configuration file creation failure

I previously tried to configure dataguard broker between primary and standby databases but had an issue connecting to the standby so I executed remove configuration and started fresh today.


I executed the following successfulyl on the primary:


alter system set dg_broker_config_file1='/u01/app/oracle/admin/PrimaryDB/dr1PrimaryDB.bat' scope=both;
alter system set dg_broker_config_file2='/u01/app/oracle/admin/PrimaryDB/dr2PrimaryDB.bat' scope=both;
alter system set DG_BROKER_START=TRUE scope=both;


and then conencted to primary database via dgmgrl:

DGMGRL> connect sys@PrimaryDB

Password:



Connected.



Then I attempted to create a configuration for primary:


DGMGRL> create configuration 'PrimaryDB_DG' as primary database is 'PrimaryDB' connect identifier is PrimaryDB;


the above gave me an error:

Error: ORA-16571: Data Guard configuration file creation failure

Failed.

I searched metalink but all I found was OERR: ORA-16571 Data Guard configuration file creation failure (Doc ID 172947.1) which was not helpful - all it said was "Verify that your ORACLE_HOME area is available to the broker."

Can some help me figure it out?

check your db parameter dg_broker_config_file and note the location. Make sure you have full permission to the directory.

I checked that already, it's not a permissions issue.

As it turns out, it was a space issue - the filesystem ran out of space in the process due to being filled up with audit files
