>> and now i am not able to import those DUMP
What might be the errors?
Should we guess the error messages also? (alongwith Oracle/OS versions) Smile
Please post the exact error message you got when importing.

Edit:
Oops. Brian was faster Smile

I really dont know that what are the error messages bcz I am not the Oracle guy but I was just wondering when Our Oracle guy said that theres no way to get the data back from the DUMP file as its corrupted and cant be accessable.

As i know about Oracle so I dun think so that theres no way to do that so I got your website and i thought to ask you professionals that might i will get some really gr8 help.

about the file so i can send you the file bcz i dont know what are the error messages.

The fool is the DBA for only having an export for a backup.

Mahesh is right, your best option is to contact Oracle Support.

Unlike you, I have'nt declared myself anything like that.

>>I the file I will send is also corrupted but we dont need that data from the file
Then what is the whole purpose of the sending the file?
Are we fools working on something that you do not need? Smile

The point i was trying to make is,
You are willing to send your data to a public forum.
What if i can recover the data and expose the information? (critical or not that is a different case)
That was funny to me.

we were exporting the FULL DUMPS for every year

It mean your data is not important for you.
strange.. one year one dump without any physical backup..


it but I think that we all are here to get help or support others.

Ofcourse , we all are trying to give support or help to every one.

plz. if it is production database.
Then simple Call Oracle Support.

Bcoz you have no physical backup.
( i think you lost all datafiles)
and you have only last year old dump file and also it is corrupted.( as you said in above post)

best regards
Taj

What are your oracle versions and OS version?
Are the source and target oracle version and OS are different?
Are you copying/ftp'ing/tranfering the DUMP files from machine to machine or across different OS?
or where/how did you get this file from archives/tapes/disk?
If FTP'ied the file make sure you have used BIN option.
May Sound silly but happens all the time.Did anyone attemp to edit the file?

Dear Mahesh

the story is that the database server was configured to export a full dump file to the D drive. the server got crushed and we came to know that the dump files are gone corrupted as well after reinstalling the operating system.

OS is Windows Server 2003 Std Edition
Oracle version is 7
and we reconfigured the server in the same case as it was before means no OS difference or Oracle difference. and nobody tried to edit the file.

hi,

Are you sure ur dump file is corrupted if yes. then submit ur dump file to Oracle Support Services.
or
if you have another copy of ur dump file then try to import ur database from dump file.


and also looking to new version ( latest 10gr2) for Oracle Database.



Regards
Taj

>> Oracle version is 7
It is a decade old story then. Oracle 7 is been desupported several years ago and now is officially in Oracle's Musuem of Antiques.
Even Oracle Support will not help you (unless you are a really important customer).
>>configured to export a full dump file to the D drive.
And you NEVER took a tape backup/remote backup of the dumps from this directory and kept all the dump files only locally?
If that is the case, sorry. I have no idea what to do.
