Quite new to Oracle, so please bare with me.
I need to alter my shared pool in the configuration for the DB instance, but I am receiving the ORA-04033 Error (insufficent memory if though there isn't). I see that this problem is common and to fix it I need to alter my SPFile, but I cannot find mine to do so. I ran 'show parameter spfile' but it just returned 'String'. Does this mean I have none?
It seems though that I have a Pfile called init.ora in my Oracle/admin/<instance name>'/pfile/ dir. Do I alter this instead?
Please help as I am not sure what to do next.
Also, any suggestions as to what the Shared Pool value should be? What decides its value?
