I use script "create pfile from spfile;" After I delete the file "inti.ora".
then I search the file "init.ora",but I can not find the file.
where does the pfile go?

The file is not named "init.ora" but "init<ISD>.ora".
It should be in %ORACLE_HOME%\database (or maybe %ORACLE_HOME%\dbs) where ORACLE_HOME is the one the instance (not yours).

Thanks Michel´╝îI found it.

But, what does the file "init.ora" in "..10.2.0\admin\orcl\pfile" do?

Nothing if you don't call it.

For instance, on my laptop, I have a pfile in %ORACLE_HOME%\database named init.MIKE.ora which contains only one line (I obfuscate the path):
ifile = %ORACLE_BASE%\Admin\MIKE\Pfile\init.ora 

which means that the actual parameter file is in the Admin directory but allows me to start the database without naming the actual parameter file in the "startup" command.

Michel
