I have two node running Oracle 10g and data guard. After both primay and standby database down, I can't start primary database and get error of

ora -16649: database will open after Data Guard broker has evaluated Fast-Start Failover status

When checking fast-start failover status, it shows unsynchronized.
How do I fix the problem to start and open primary? I can start standby in read-only mode. Thanks.

version ?
with what patch? 5604010 which came out today
patch 5502226 ?

simple question, is the OBSERVER running?
dgmgrl> start observer
I had a really long weekend fighting Data Guard, Data Guard Broker.
Bottom line, make sure all the FLASHBACK parameters are set on both primary and secondary.

I had them set correctly,but I did not set "SCOPE=BOTH" on a number of my "alter database flashback..." therefore, when i did a reboot on the database, lost a number of parameters setting.

Another shot:
on the broker side,
dgmgrl> disable fast_STart failover;
what is the output: disable?
dgmgrl> enable fast_STart failover;
what is the output?
