    Hi all!

    I have this query:

    WE are into Development stage and working on Oracle v8i with NT as OS.

    1.I take cold backups of the following DB Files by shutting down the DB:
    a).Control01.ctl,Control02.ctl,Control03.ctl Files
    f).Parameter File INIT.ORA.
    g).Password File.

    The above DB files are on d:\> drive.
    Cold Backups I store on E:> drive.

    In case the DB crashes,do I have to put the Db in ArchiveLog Mode
    and recover upto a certain point in time.
    As when the Db is shutdown to take cold backups,Db goes into the default NoArchivelog Mode.

    Is it OK!

    2.How could I make my Application Developers make use and run TKPROF,AUTOTRACE utility from their client machines to tune their sql queries.

    please do a back up a trace file which will help you in creating new control files in case of db crash.

    if db crashes you only have to give the parameter file.

    startup nomount pfile='where you saved the pfile'
    then create the new control file(if you have change the destination ie c:\ to d:\

    then make the system in archive log but be sure you have entries in init.ora file uncomented.
