http://serverfault.com – I'm trying to enable Oracle-Managed Files on Oracle Express for Windows XP. From everything I've read, I need to set db_create_file_dest to an existing directory in the file system. I've tried setting db_create_file_dest=C:\somedir in init.ora. There appears to be two init.ora files, so I added it to both: C:\oraclexe\app\oracle\product\11.2.0\server\config\scripts\init.ora C:\oraclexe\app\oracle\product\11.2.0\server\dbs\init.ora After restarting the Oracle service (I also tried rebooting Windows), db_create_file_dest is still not set. It would appear that Oracle is not using either ini (HowTos)
