Using export/import to migrate from Windows to Solaris

We are using export/import for migrating Oracle from Windows to Solaris. What are all the things that we need to take care of?

We are using export/import for migrating Oracle from Windows to Solaris. What are all the things that we need to take care of? Is there any documentation for this?
I have two documents that are must-reads for this type of activity: the Oracle Upgrade Guide and the Oracle Utilities Guide.

The Upgrade Guide will give detailed instructions on how to upgrade, including using export/import for the upgrade. The Utilities Guide will give you details on the export and import utilities.

The basic idea of your migration is to precreate the Oracle database on the Solaris server. Then precreate any tablespaces you'll need. On the Windows server use exp to create a full database dump. FTP the dump file (in binary mode) to your Solaris server and then use imp to import the entire dump file.
