I have recently encountered a crime mystery with Oracle on Windows Server 2012. Windows updates were installed but, at the end of installation, SPFILE was gone. Data Guard broker complained that "the primary database is not using spfile". The spfile was re-created and no harm done, but what can be causing SPFILE to be deleted? The database is being backed up, I am even looking at rman. I would be grateful for any suggestions.
