Migrating a database from Oracle 7 server release 7.1.6.2.0 to Oracle 9i

I have an "Oracle 7 Server release 7.1.6.2.0 - Production Release" database on a DG/UX Machine. I wish to migrate that to Oracle 9i on a Windows 2000 machine. Please help me and guide me as to what sequence of actions I should take to make that happen.

Your steps are as follows:

  1. Precreate the Oracle 9i database on your Windows 2000 server. You need to create the database and create the tablespaces that will hold your data.
  2. On the DG server, export the entire contents of the database as follows:
       exp userid=system/manager file=dg.dmp log=dg.log full=y
    
  3. FTP the dump file to the Windows server. Make sure that the FTP is done in Binary mode.
  4. Import the contents of the dump file as follows:
       imp userid=system/manager file=dg.log log=imp.log full=y
    

It's as simple as that!
