ORA-32001: write to SPFILE requested but no SPFILE specified at startup

Hi,

Sometimes You can get “ORA-29760: instance_number parameter not specified ” error.

 

Details of error are as follows.

ORA-32001: write to SPFILE requested but no SPFILE specified at startup
Cause: An alter system command or an internal self tuning mechanism requested a write to the SPFILE but no SPFILE was used to startup the instance
Action: Create an SPFILE and re-start the instance using the SPFILE.
ALTER SYSTEM SET processes = 1000 SCOPE=SPFILE;

ALTER SYSTEM SET processes = 1000 SCOPE=SPFILE
*
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-32001: write to SPFILE requested but no SPFILE is in use

 

 


Firstly create a spfile from pfile or memory as follows.

SQL> create spfile from pfile;

SQL> create spfile from memory;

 

Then Restart database, normally database will startup via spfile if it exists.

SQL> shutdown immediate;
SQL> startup

 

Now try again.

 

SQL> ALTER SYSTEM SET processes = 1000 SCOPE=SPFILE;
System altered.
