I have Oracle 10.2.0.4 database on HP-UX. I want to move this to same version of database on windows on different server.I want everything to be same on both databases on different servers(names of databases can change)

I installed oracle on windows box and created a database 10.2.0.4. Few questions

1) What is the best method to recreate complete database on another machine.In my case move 10.2.0.4 database on HP-UX to 10.2.0.4 database on windows. Is there a better method other than dpexp/dpimp?

2) When I created database 10.2.0.4 on windows it created sys, system and other default users. If I get a full export of 10.2.0.4 database on HP-UX it also contains sys, system and other default users. My question is, will there be any issue when I import full mode into 10.2.0.4 database on windows?

3) If I do with dpexp/dpimp what are the best parameters to be used?

Thanks

1) RMAN backup/convert/restore
2) SYS is never exported but I'd only export custom users not full
3) export only your users

Welcome to the forum. Please read our OraFAQ Forum Guide and How to use [code] tags and make your code easier to read

The transportable database facility might be the way to go, http://docs.oracle.com/cd/B19306_01/backup.102/b14191/dbxptrn.htm#CHDCFFDI

Thanks Black,Michel,John for answers.

1) RMAN backup/convert/restore. I understand backup and restore. Not sure what is convert and why needed here.

2) When I dpexport what user(sys,system,another user) account is recommended? I agree that user need full_database_export privileges.

3) What user is recommended again while dpimport?

4) Can I safely ignore users created by default during database creation for dpexport full?

Thanks

Sorry. I might have hit submit button quickly. Please ignore my question 1). Being on different platform if endian format is different we have to convert.

2) Yes.
3) Because it requires you analyze your database and explicitly export/import what is needed for your application(s). It is a cleaner and safer way to do it than to blindly export/import full database and then you are sure you do not import what you don't want. More work but, once again, safer and cleaner.
4) See 3: analysis step.

Michel

Michel,

Sorry.I am not clear on your answers. Here are my questions

2) When I dpexport what user(sys,system,another user) account is recommended? I agree that user need full_database_export privileges. Do you recommend sys or system account for full export?

3) What user is recommended again while dpimport? Do you recommend sys or system account for full export?

4) Can I safely ignore users created by default during database creation for dpexport full? My understanding from your last post was to select schemas to export rather than exporting everything. Correct me if I am wrong.

Thanks

are you unwilling or incapable to Read The Fine Manual yourself; regarding SYS & SYSTEM users?

http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/server.112/e10897/users_secure.htm#ADMQS12003

SYS user should only be used to apply patches & version upgrades

4) Yes.

The rest was already answered: export YOUR users and only YOUR users.

Michel

I use the following script to build the expdp commands. If an expdp command fails or an impdp command fails, I fall back on the old exp/imp commands. the expdp and impdp are way faster. I usually do NOT run in parallel in 10.2.0.4 because I get more failures.
