Importing from Windows to Linux
Before you import, precreate the tablespaces on your Linux server. It does not matter where you create the tablespaces, just create them with the same tablespace name. When you perform a full import (FULL=Y), Oracle will skip over the CREATE TABLESPACE commands since those tablespaces already exist. The rest of your import will proceed normally.
