I have a question about the content of the file init.ora, according to oracle documentation.
DB_NAME specifies a database identifier of up to 8 characters. This parameter must be specified and must correspond to the name specified in the CREATE DATABASE statement.
In my understanding the command sqlplus knows to which database connect because it reads the information from the init.ora file.
My init.ora file is as follow
db_name='ORCL' memory_target=1G processes = 150
I think is the default one, I would think that the name of my database would appeared in the db_name parameter, then I perform a query in sqlplus to get the name of the database and the result is
My question is why the name is BO1 if in the init.ora is ORCL? By the way I don't have any other init.ora
Thanks in advance
