i am not able to execute any alter system command , the error i am getting is

ora-32001 : write to SP FILE requested but no spfile specified at startup.

i started the database using

startup pfile='d:\mydb_ks.sql'

since the location of pfile was on d:\ drive of the server.kindly advice.

thanks blackswan for the immediate response and great help.Well two more query, create spfile should be done after shutdown.Shall i go for shutdown abort instead of shutdown immediate as its taking long time to shutdown.

If you don't (want to) use a spfile then just modify your pfile, don't use alter system.

ALWAYS copy and paste what you do and get when you post an error.

If you want to continue with SPFILE
create spfile from pfile;
shutdown immediate
startup
