I don't know why the file is not there after being copied.

My suggestion: try creating a symlink.

From the command line:

ln -s /u01/app/oracle/product/ /u01/app/oracle/admin/sudhakar/pfile/init.ora.

Try this BEFORE coping the files. See if Oracle works with the symlink.

However, if the problem still remains after creating a symlink (the symlink is also lost, just as the copied file), you could also write a simple bash script and add its name to your /etc/boot.local file of things to do when booting up.

If Oracle works with the symlink, then try this: create a bash script with this content. Give the file a name. Make it executable. Put it in /etc.

ln -s /u01/app/oracle/product/ /u01/app/oracle/admin/sudhakar/pfile/init.ora

and let bash create the symlink while booting.
