Moving database from an NT server to UnixWare
I have Oracle 126.96.36.199.1 installed on an NT server. How can I shift my database from the NT server to
another server running SCO UnixWare 7?
You will have to install Oracle software on your new server. Then precreate any tablespaces you'll need. Finally, use export and import to move your database. Perform a full export of your source database as
exp userid=system/manager file=my_full_db.dmp full=y
FTP the dump file in binary mode to your destination server, then import the entire dump file as follows:
imp userid=system/manager file=my_full_db.dmp full=y
That should complete your move.
