Note:

The following is set to change the location of standby datafile.
db_file_name_convert = C:\oradata, C:\data, c:\oradata1, c:\data, c:\oradata2, c:\data

However, it is created as follows during CSD.
 C:\DATA1\DEV\SYSTEM01.DBF
C:\DATA2\DEV\USERS01.DBF

The convert parameters you sent are incorrectly set and work as intended.

db_file_name_convert = C:\oradata, C:\data, c:\oradata1, c:\data, c:\oradata2, c:\data

The first parameter is a substring of the next 2 pairs.

So all filenames like C:\oradataXXX are handled by the first convert pair: C:\oradata, C:\data
So the result is then C:\dataXXX

Set the db_file_name_convert parameter following – see the slash at the end.

db_file_name_convert = C:\oradata\, C:\data\, c:\oradata1\, c:\data\, c:\oradata2\, c:\data\

  This will result in :

 C:\DATA\DEV\SYSTEM01.DBF
C:\DATA\DEV\USERS01.DBF
