I am running a database on Windows and one on Linux. I have taken a backup of the database from the Windows system. Will this backup be utilized to restore the database running on Linux? If yes, can you tell me the procedure?
You can only restore the backup on a similar platform. The datafiles for Oracle on Windows are not compatible with the datafiles for Oracle on Linux.
