Somehow I noticed that this 2 parameters are working for varchar2 columns but not for nvarchar2 columns, do I need to set set any other NLS parameters for unicode data to get case insensitive search.

See m#58850 for the nls parameter priorities.

When we set the following parameters on the client machine with alter session it works fine and we get case insensitive searches but when we try to set this in spfile it only affects the sessions on the database machine:

Is there any way we can change this settings at the instance level so that we don't have to use logon trigger to set this at session level?
