failure in processing system parameters
This ORA-01078 errors are related with the missing of parameter file (pfile or spfile)
To solve this error, you can check and fix the PFILE or SPFILE NAME.
I have changed pfile name with initCLONE.ora and it is started as follows.
SQL> SQL> startup mount; ORACLE instance started. Total System Global Area 2.1379E+10 bytes Fixed Size 2230912 bytes Variable Size 1.0469E+10 bytes Database Buffers 1.0872E+10 bytes Redo Buffers 36106240 bytes Database mounted.
Sometimes If you set wrong ORACLE_SID, you may get this error. So check your ORACLE_SID with the following command.
Or IF Pfile or spfile don’t exist, then you can create it manually or you can restore spfile from backup.
You can read the following post to learn more details about Oracle parameter files ( SPFILE, PFILE )
