I'm not making myself clear. the init.ora's and select name,value from 
v$parameter where isdefault = 'FALSE' are all identical except for the instance 
appropriate values. I spent half the day yesterday verifying that everything is 
set properly. The only thing that I can think of is that somehow, VMS has

named INITSID2.ORA. That or the environment is not set properly, but the 
environment is out of my control or so it appears.
