I've imported a file from cd to server and when I transfer the .dmp file to a user from another user, I get this error:
IMP-00009: abnormal end of export file
IMP-00028: partial import of previous table...terminated successfully
How can I settle this?
The most common cause of this error is that the dump file was transferred to the database server using FTP and not explicitly stating to transfer in BINARY mode. To the FTP utility, the dump file can look like an ASCII file, when it is not. The solution is to perform the FTP operation again explicitly in BINARY mode.
If this does not fix your problem, then you will have to obtain another dump file; this dump file is corrupt.
