IFILE

Property Description
Parameter type Parameter file
Syntax IFILE = parameter_file_name
Default value There is no default value.
Modifiable No
Range of values Valid parameter filenames
Basic No
Oracle RAC Multiple instances can have different values.

Use IFILE to embed another parameter file within the current parameter file. For example:

IFILE = COMMON.ORA

You can have up to three levels of nesting. In this example, the file COMMON.ORA could contain a second IFILE parameter for the file COMMON2.ORA, which could contain a third IFILE parameter for the file GCPARMS.ORA. You can also include multiple parameter files in one parameter file by listing IFILE several times with different values:

IFILE = DBPARMS.ORA
IFILE = GCPARMS.ORA
IFILE = LOGPARMS.ORA

Note:

You must list multiple entries on contiguous lines of the parameter file.
