This may be a stupid question, but I can't find any information out there on this.
Is there a way to tell if the database uses a pfile or spfile when the instance is down?
For example if an Oracle database went down that I was not familiar with and had no documentation on, and I was tasked with getting it back up and running. How would I know if it used a PFILe or SPFILE? Startup vs Startup pfile=
Thanks in advance
