DGMGRL error: Object “a1021p_site1” was not found


While testing some scripts, I was getting an error on DGMGRL, while querying some databases:

DGMGRL> show database A1021P_SITE1
Object "a1021p_site1" was not found

But it would work if I put single quotes around:

DGMGRL> show database 'A1021P_SITE1'

Database - A1021P_SITE1

  Role:            PRIMARY
  Intended State:  TRANSPORT-ON
  Instance(s):
    A1021P

Database Status:
SUCCESS

The problem is on the way the database was added to the configuration, and it is quite simple to fix it…

  1. after disabling configuration
  2. and connecting with password to the database
  3. then just rename the database to a name without using quotes.
DGMGRL> edit database 'A1021P_SITE1' rename to a1021p_site1;
Error: ORA-16602: database must be disabled to perform this operation
