Errors during import of dump file

I created a User Export dump of an Oracle 9i database on Windows 2003 Server, and the export terminated successfully. While importing this dump in Oracle 9i on another system with Windows 2000 Advanced Server, the import is getting terminated with the following error message:

 
IMP-00009: abnormal end of export file
 
IMP-00028: partial import of previous table rolled back: 83384 rows rolled back

The most common cause is that the dump file was not transferred to the destination server correctly. If you are using FTP to transfer the file, ensure that you are transferring in BINARY mode. The FTP client may choose to transfer in ASCII mode and you will get this error when importing.

If you are sure that the file was transferred correctly, then you have a corrupt dump file. Recreate the dump file and try your import again.
