Unanswered: How to make an oracle server and DB copy
I've got Win2000 AS + Oracle 8i EE, and 1 instance on it.
I decided to make a copy of oracle server and instance.
So I haven't oracle distribution, I made the following...
1. Made copy:
2. Corrected the server name in \OraHome\network\ADMIN
3. Add the subtree in registry:
4. Add an ORA_DBA group and Administrator within
5. Add paths into PATH
6. Set up the services:
The services was started.
SQL> connect sys/passwd@bd as sysdba
Connected to an idle instance.
LRM-00109: could not open parameter file '%ORACLE_HOME%\DATABASE\INIT%ORACLE_SID%.ORA'
ORA-01078: failure in processing system parameters
SQL> startup pfile=c:\OraHome\admin\BD\pfile\initbd.ora
ORA-27100: shared memory realm already exists
What else I should to do to get a working instance?
