sap not starting during manual failover testing

Dera friends,

We are performing manual failover testing between CI(sap central instance) and DB(oracle database)

the environment is ECC6.0 on AIX server

CI is running on one server and DB is running on another, during manual testing we have failed the DB, so now DB file systems has got mounted on CI server.

So when i log into CI with user as shown below (sid-irp)

su - irpadm

and the execute the command as shown below

irpadm 6> startsap

i get the following message

PRDCIXI:irpadm 6> startsap

ABAP Database IRP must be started on remote server


why am i getting this "ABAP Database IRP must be started on remote server" message.

What could be the cause for my database not comming up & why is it looking for remote server, when all the DB filesystems have got mounted on CI server (the server that has CI installed)

We are in a bad shape and the issue is quite crticial.

Your reply would be highly appreciated.
