The init.ora file is created by Oracle isn't it?
Can anyone tell me what I did wrong during install to cause the init.ora file to not be created? I've done an 8.1.7 and a 9.2.0 install and both were missing the file. Once I copied and modified another db's file and added it, the db came up and shut down just fine so I know that is apparently the only problem.
Any ideas?
