System copy error of init.ora


I am doing system copy. My versions are ERP04, DB is oracle and OS is AIX 5.3

I have restored datafiles and others and also init<SID>.ora files

But I am getting an error

It is at step Oracle Preload Actions. It is giving me the following error:-

ERROR 2008-12-28 01:28:17

MDB-06177 Bad entry in the init.ora file: Bad parameter value. Starts

with '=' or white space or contains '(' or ')'. Line 15 near string ','.

ERROR 2008-12-28 02:26:45

MDB-06021 Could not read file: [/oracle/<SID>/920_64/dbs/initRD1.ora].

I am doing system copy. I have copied the init<SID>.ora file from too.

Line 15 is the line with parameter control files.

I have checked it and rewrote it manually, but it did not help.

I tried to remove *. from every paramter and restarted the DB and retried

installation, but it did not help.

I have searched for notes and on SDN but did not get anything.

I am not getting what can be the problem.

Kindly help
