We are using Oracle9i Release - Production Standard. We tried to set the parameter audit file destination in the pfile but when starting up the database it didn't recognize the parameter. We dropped it and went forward. Auditing is working and it is dumping to the default destination.

Can somebody give me a reason that Oracle didn't recognize this?  It's in the documentation..!?!

If this is on NT or 2000, then this is likely your problem:

Problem Description: When configuring Auditing on an NT and you add the parameter AUDIT_FILE_DEST then you bounce the database for the parameter to take effect you get:  LRM-00101: UNKNOWN PARAMETER NAME 'AUDIT_FILE_DEST' ORA-01078: FAILURE IN PROCESSING SYSTEM PARAMETERS    

Problem Explanation: On Windows NT the auditing information is sent to the NT Event Viewer not a file This parameter is not supported for Windows NT since all auditing information is sent to the Windows NT Event Viewer and not a file.
