hello

It's not a MUST.

You are right, you can put all the parameters just in init.ora.

Often people put parameters that are usefull for several instances in a special file --> ifile.

So this is for organising your mess.

sometimes the ORA_%SID%_PFILE registry key is set to look at the ifile. if you have your instance set to autostart this could be a problem.  make sure this key string value has a valid path to your pfile.

good luck,

this is in regards to my comment:  it is only applicable if you're install is on a windows box; you may not be after looking at your ifile path.  if so, ignore my comment.

It is not necessary to have ifile parameter in your parameter file.

It is mainly used for storing common parameters for multiple instances.

You can very well remove this parameter and put all parameters of ifile in your parameter file.


Hope this satisfy your answer.

Cheers.
