Is it possible to clone an Oracle 10g database from Linux (R3 update4) server to IBM Blade Server under Linux AS4 with exp/imp?
Absolutely! Use the export utility to dump the entire database with the FULL=Y parameter. Then precreate the new database on the new server. FTP the dump file in binary mode to the new server. Import the entire contents of the dump file with the FULL=Y parameter. Alternatively, instead of the exp and imp utilities, since both versions are Oracle 10g, you can use the new Data Pump utilities, expdp and impdp.
