init.ora file not created by oradim
I'm using oradim to create a test database but the init.ora is not created when I issued the following command:
oradim -new -sid leon -startmode manual -pfile "C:\admin\leon\pfile\init.ora"
1) does the oradim command automatically create the folders and file mentioned in the pfile path or should I create the path. Presently only C:\admin exists.
2) how can I use the oradim utility to create the init.ora file.

Try doing a search on oradim in the docs.
Never used ORADIM much before( always used DBCA), I thought ORADIM is an Oracle Utility for creating and deleteing Oracle services and by which you can also do startup and shutdown of oracle DB. I dont think you can create database and init files using oradim.
So to answer your question,
1) The init file path you give in command line, directs oradim to use that file during starup of DB. No such files would be created.
2) You cannot create new init.ora file using oradim.
correct me if I am wrong here.
What's there to think about? The use of oradim is spelled out in the reference previously provided.
