Create SPFILE on ASM from PFILE on Filesystem

Some basics, right?
Another thing that is not usual and everytime I do, someone be surprised: “shu” alias for “shutdown”:

SQL> create spfile='+DGDATA/MYDB/spfilemydb.ora' from pfile='/oracle/product/11.2/dbs/init_mydb.ora';
File created.
SQL> shu immediate;
Database closed.
Database dismounted.
ORACLE instance shut down.
