    I created another database through dbassist but placed it in a different mount point.
    The creation process went perfect.
    But when I try to do a
    startup open 'dbname'
    for some reason it keeps pointing to the first database that Ive created.
    How can I make it point to the new database?
    I did a startup pfile=/u02/../../..
    and then it would give me the error:
    invalid password file /u01/../../orapwDB1
    where as the new password file is placed in that very same directory under the name orapwDB2 but it wont pick that up?

    What files do i need to look at to make svrmgrl point to the right set of files?

    You have to change you $ORACLE_SID variable.
