RMAN: How does it suppose to work in Windows???
In RMAN, you can backup your SFILE from autobackup. Let's say if the server crashed so you lost everything, you get another server and start restoring the backup the new server. The very first step is you have to create Oracle Service In WIndows , in order to create the service you have to have to pfile, but you lost everything. The point I am tyring to make is in windows it required to have pfile in order to create the ORacle service, but in order to restore the SPfile , you have to put the DB in "mount" so are you are going to mount the DB if you can't even have the Oracle service.
