The name of the parameter file containing OpenEdge database startup parameters.
Use Parameter File (-pf) to name a parameter file that includes any number of startup parameters to run an OpenEdge database. This parameter is especially useful if you regularly use the same parameters to start your database, or if more parameters are specified than can fit on the command line. This parameter can be included within the parameter file itself to reference another parameter file.
Use multiple instances of -pf to name multiple parameter files. This allows you to specify application-specific parameters in one parameter file, database-specific parameters in a second parameter file, and user-specific parameters in yet another file.
