I was attempting to fix another issue and set sec_case_sensitive_logon to false. I then removed this using Notepad++ instead of the CLI. But I then started getting various errors:
When I attempt to run
startup, I get the following error:
I have no idea why it was trying to use the init ora file because I've started this DB fine in the past and this file doesn't exist.
So my only conclusion is this must have been from when I updated my SPFILE using Notepad++. But the line endings are correctly showing as LF.
I'm not sure what could be happening here.
