How to complete an Oracle installation on Linux

Database Backup and Recovery expert Brian Peasland explains how to complete an Oracle installation on Linux including how to migrate and export an Oracle 8i production database.

I am migrating an Oracle 8i production database to another server, besides installing Oracle software and taking full export of the production database. What do I need to do in the new server before importing data? Both databases are on Red Hat Linux. Can you provide me with a document for Oracle 8.1.7 installation on Linux?

Before you can perform a full export, you will need to precreate the destination database. Then precreate any tablespaces you'll need. If you perform a FULL export, it will contain all of the CREATE USER and CREATE ROLE statements for you. It will also contain the CREATE TABLESPACE statements, but I usually precreate the tablespaces, since my directory structure is not quite the same on the destination server.

Visit the Oracle8i 8.1.7 Documentation guide to find information on installing Oracle 8.1.7 for Linux. In the Linux Intel section, you will see the Installation Guide in PDF form.
