.. Detailed OCI error val is 604 and errmsg is 'ORA-00604: error occurred at recursive SQL level 1
ORA-06550: line 11, column 5:
PL/SQL: ORA-16224: Database Guard is enabled
ORA-06550: line 2, column 2:

# Workaround was to change the guard to "none" until logical dataguard was activated, then switch back to "all".

alter database guard none;

alter database guard all;
select guard_status from v$database;


# Another option would be to disable the login trigger on the standby.
