I have registered the static entry with listener.

Oracle 11gR2

AEMF> switchover to "DRTEST";
Performing switchover NOW, please wait...
New primary database "DRTEST" is opening...
Operation requires shutdown of instance "TEST1" on database "TEST"
Shutting down instance "TEST1"...
ORACLE instance shut down.
Operation requires startup of instance "TEST1" on database "TEST"
Starting instance "TEST1"...
Unable to connect to database
ORA-12514: TNS:listener does not currently know of service requested in connect descriptor

Failed.
Warning: You are no longer connected to ORACLE.

Please complete the following steps to finish switchover:
        start up and mount instance "TEST1" of database "TEST"

AEMF> exit

I have tried to reload the listener, and verified that staticconnectidentifier property is correct for both databases. Why am I still receiving this error?

I have tried the startup mount of test1 instance as well and it's the same error.

The ORA error suggests you may have a malformed TNSNAMES.ORA; would you please post the relevant part as a code snippet.

DR ...
this is a standby database setup you are trying to switchover ?

the database instance name is TEST1 on both servers ?
only the server names are different ?

Yes this was a DR standby database. DVZ is correct, the TNSNAMES.ora was malformed.
