Hi, I am in the processing of restoring a Oracle 9i database to a different location on Windows OS. I have copied all the datafiles and control files and the standby database is a near replica on the production (i.e. instance/sid name folder structure except where the DBF and control file are located etc). I have modified the init.ora file to point to the copied control files, however, when I try to login to Oracle as sysdba I get ORA-01033 Insufficient Priviliges. Prior to changing the init.ora file I could log in, I used the original init.ora file but got the same error. Any help would be much appreciated...
