I need help on database migration from Oracle 8i to Oracle 9i. This migration also invloves migration from Tru64 Unix to Sun Solaris 9.
If you're migrating platforms these days, you have two options:
- The "old" way using export and import to move the objects and data, or
- Upgrade both databases to 10g and use cross-platform transportable tablespaces to move the datafiles directly from one database to another (with a possible conversion).
Depending on the size and type of database, it may be worth looking at the 10g option. Plus, you'd avoid another upgrade in a year or so and get better support from Oracle.
