Hi all,

I'm installing a new application-testing server,
i have installed 11g r2 instant clients & SQL* Plus client.


when i'm trying to run an expdp command, i get this:

'expdp' is not recognized as an internal or external command


Now, i understand this is because i don't have the Bin directory of a client installation in my Path of the OS.

My question is, which one exactly i need for using data-pump utility, and where to download it?


I've found lots of posts of people that had issues with defining the ORA_HOME$\bin in the $PATH, or having a client incompatibility issue throughout the web, but no answer to my specific question.


please help,


Thanks & Regards,

Andrey

You have to choose the one complete client (not instant one) and with the administrative tools.

I understand.
This application server i want to install it on is mostly used to run applications accessing an 11g database,
while right now in particular, i want to use Data Pump utility to perform actions on a 10g instance(whereas, in the future i might want to use Data Pump on the 11g database server from the same application server).


I understand that for the 10g database - i need a 10g client, and for the 11g database i need a 11g client(correct me please if i'm wrong).

can those 2 clients exist in peace on the same application server, and give me the ability to use Data Pump on both database instances of versions 10g & 11g?

Thanks,
Andrey

You need or not both clients depend on what you want to do and what you have in your databases.
