LGWR: Primary database is in MAXIMUM AVAILABILITY mode | ORA-16072: a minimum of one standby database destination is required

Problem:

One of our customer cloned database from a DG environment to a different host and tried to open it as a standalone database. Controlfile and datafiles still considered the database in maximum availability mode.

Errors after trying to open the database:

LGWR: Primary database is in MAXIMUM AVAILABILITY mode
LGWR: Destination LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_1 is not serviced by LGWR
LGWR: Minimum of 1 LGWR standby database required
