Recovery with missing init.ora file

If the initsid.ora file is missing how should we recover it?

If the initsid.ora file is missing how should we recover it?

If you are missing your INIT.ORA configuration file and you have no backup, the only way to recover it is to manually re-create it. You can do this with any text editor on your system as this file is just a simple text file.

If you are using Oracle 9i or higher and using RMAN for your backups, then I suggest converting the INIT.ORA to the new SPFILE.ORA configuration file. RMAN can automatically back up this file for you, but cannot back up the INIT.ORA config file.
