Dear friends,
I have installed oracle 11g enterprise on RHEL5.Installation was successful.
Im tried to connect to database using sys as sysdba with sqlplus but it returns this error:
ORA-01078: failure in processing system parameters
LRM-00109: could not open parameter file '/u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/dbhome_1/dbs/initORCL.ora'

I tried to connect to other databases as well but i getting similar error.
Installation details:
Oracle edition: Oracle 11g enterprise
Operating system : RHEL 5
My groups dba,oninstall,oper
User : oracle
ORACLE_BASE:/u01/app/oracle
ORACLE_HOME:$ORACLE_BASE/product/11.2.0/dbhome_1

And did you attempt to put those errors into Google, or look them up in Oracle's knowledgebase? It's telling you very plainly that the file doesn't exist. So...either create it, modify the location, or restore it from backup:
