What is the purpose of oradim in NT for a database creation?
I have worked on unix never came across oradim.
oradim -new -sid PVDR -intpwd oracle -startmode auto -pfile %PFILE%
oradim -startup -sid PVDR -intpwd oracle -starttype srvc,inst -pfile %PFILE%
Oradim on NT is used to create (and modify and delete) a database service for Oracle instance. Services are concept that is specific for NT/2000 environment (because of its multithreaded architecture), you won't find anything similar on Unix, so that's why oradim is not needed there....
check out this site to find out more about oradim.
hopefully this link is helpful.
thank u that is a very good documentation !!
