I am not sure if this is the right place to post the query here...

We have a 10g d/b on UNIX box at client-site and a local d/b server(OS - Windows 2003 server) at offshore.Now I have to have identical versions of the data on the UNIX box d/b and the one on windows 2003 server.

Can just exporting the data from the UNIX box d/b and copying that dump into the d/b on Windows 2003 server help me achieve this?

Also do we need to handle this differently since we are copying d/b data across diff OS?

Yes, export/import is the way to do it.
Just take to transfert the data in binary (and not ascii) mode between the 2.

Does the destination database have data in it? If so, then you have to drop all the tables. I am hoping that you are not asking how to synch the destination databases to the source database. Talk about a headache.
