How to import a dump from a Windows machine to an Oracle 9i Unix server?
First, FTP the dump file in *BINARY* mode to the Unix server. On the Unix server, precreate a new Oracle database. You can use the Database Configuration Assistant if you want. Also precreate any users and tablespaces that you'll need. You should be able to query the original, source database for a list of users and tablespaces. All that is left is to start the import process with the following:
imp userid=system file=my_dump.dmp full=y
You'll have to use your dump file in the "file=" parameter.
