On Windows 2003, how can you manually connect to the database and thenstart
a database using a new pfile?
I understand you can start the database using a xpfile, and now you want to use ypfile there are two options 1. Temporarily, you start the databaes normally, shutdown, and then from sqlplus start using the pfile parameter startup pfile=ypfile 2. Permanently, you drop the using the oradim utility and recreate using the ypfile.
