Oradim and Spfile
Last updated on SEPTEMBER 02, 2017
Applies to:Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 188.8.131.52 to 184.108.40.206 [Release 9.2 to 11.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
The goal of this note is to clarify for customers the use of the -PFILE / -SPFILE options with oradim.
When creating the Windows service (using oradim) required to start an Oracle instance and using the -pfile option an entry is created for ORA_<SID>_PFILE in the Windows registry. What happens when you leave off the -pfile option? Is there a way to specify using the spfile instead?
