CREATE DATABASE LINK hp_db_link AS CONNECT TO scott IDENTIFIED BY tiger USING 'hp_db';
You will need a valid username and password instead of scott/tiger. Now that the db link has been created, precreate the table in the Solaris db. Then copy the data from the HP db across the link and insert into the Solaris table similar to the following:
INSERT INTO solaris_table SELECT * FROM hp_table@hp_db_link;
Many times, this performs faster than export/import.
