You can back up, copy, or move an Oracle ASM SPFILE with the ASMCMD
spmove commands. In addition, you can use the SQL
SPFILE to create an Oracle ASM SPFILE when connected to the Oracle ASM instance.
You can also copy and move an Oracle ASM PFILE with the commands available on the specific platform, such as
cp for Linux.
After copying or moving an SPFILE or PFILE, you must restart the instance with the SPFILE or PFILE in the new location to use that SPFILE or PFILE.
