hello experts,
Is it also possible to use the EXPORT and IMPORT utilities from a client machine?
I want to give these utilities to one of my developers
without allowing him to sit in front of my Oracle server.

i am using oracle 11.2.0.1 and windows7 OS

thanks in advance.......

thanks sir,

there are 2 servers dev and prod , i want to export some tables from dev to prod database,
from the client machine(my local machine) and i can access the both of the database.

if i use:-

c:>Expdp devuser/password@db_name tables=test1,test2,test3 dumpfile=mydump.dmp

and c:>impdp produser/password@db_name tables=devuser.test1,devuser.test2, devuser.test3
dumpfile=mydump.dmp remap_schema=devuser:produser content=data_only

thses are using default data_pump_dir directory.

then what changes should i do ,so that both exp/imp dumpfiles will be saved on my local machine not on server.


thanks again.....

Use old export/import tools.
Data Pump works on the server.

You can also use Data Pump import across a db link, so that you have no file on servers and so can do it from a client.

means sir,

in the expdp/impdp(exp/imp thrpugh the datapump utility) command we give all the parameter at a time.

like:-

Expdp devuser/password@db_name tables=test1,test2,test3 dumpfile=mydump.dmp

impdp produser/password@db_name tables=devuser.test1,devuser.test2, devuser.test3
dumpfile=mydump.dmp remap_schema=devuser:produser content=data_only


but in old utility we have to manually give the value for each parameter lik:-

You can put all the parameters on the command line or in a parameter file; no difference with data pump for this.

Does the question on exp/imp or on expdp/impdp? This is not clear.
Anyway, I already answered for both.

ya sir, you are absolutely right that we can put all the parameters at a time in in old utility command.
and the dumpfile can be saved on client machine, even if database is on another machine.
my problem is resolved , thanks a lot sir.

my requirement was that i need to exp some tables from one server and import to the another server database ,
without login into the any server, means exp and imp both process should be accomplished on my machine(as client machine).
and also all the parameters values should be given in one go ,
but you told that dumpfile generated by expdp(new utility of exp/imp) get saved in the
directory of host machine(on server), am i right or not sir?

if yes,then i have to go for old exp/imp utility.



and sir one more question :-

if i need to exp/imp by sys then what should be the right place for 'as sysdba'.

like-

C:\exp sys/password@devdb as sysdba path='d:/dm.dmp' tables=devuser.test,devuser.test2
LRM-00108: invalid positional parameter value 'as'

EXP-00019: failed to process parameters, type 'EXP HELP=Y' for help
EXP-00000: Export terminated unsuccessfully


it gives the error.

thanks.....

Yes, and I also told you (in another way) that you can't have NO dumpfile in any server using NETWORK_LINK parameter.

Why do you need SYS?

You don't need SYS to export a schema (unless there are some vpd policies...), use SYSTEM or better a DBA account you defined.

You have to list them.

is there any way to generate tables name dynamically so that exp/imp command will be made
as the table exp/imp command?

yes,i know that we can do it through the database link,but there is some long column in the tables,
and long columns can not be export/imported by using DB link as per my knowledge.


thanks....
