Warning: ORA-16792: configurable property value is inconsistent with database setting

I got this error on DGMGRL command line when I was configuring 11g Dataguard and I issued

DGMGRL> show configuration;


This error was coming as my standby database was started using pfile,

I shutdown the standby database and restarted it using spfile and the problem was resolved.

Another time I got this error was when I changed the IP address of the machine after dataguard had been configured. I deleted the tnsnames.ora and listener.ora entries and recreated them. Then it started working.
