ORA-00205: error in identifying controlfile

Dear all,
When I try to create a Database with Oracle Installer.
When create complete and shutdown and restart ORacle.
Oracle display a error message to me(ORA-00205).
I check the config.ora parameter file , and where the control file location is.
It's no wrong indentify.
Why Oracle give the the Error message ? And How to fix ?

(Ps. I tried to move control file to another location and edit config.ora to point it. But it's no useful.)
Thanks a lots. K.Y.

Re: ORA-00205: error in identifying controlfile

There might be lot of reasons for that.

like

One of the multiple control
files are renamed or lost
The control file cannot be located in the directory as mentioned in the initSID.ora

It might be also due to the fact that oracle could not read that control file.

Just check the attachment for the solution.

Thanks

Re: ORA-00205: error in identifying controlfile

Dear all,
I slove this Question.
Because, when I create new Database before , I copy a init.ora to init.ora,
and then start to create database. But, occur the situation as Question.

So, I try to copy init_0.ora(Oracle builded parameter when I created Databse) to init.ora and start Oracle
.Magic!!! It can work.

^^"' ... I give myself 6 Points.

Thanks all.
