Just sent this to a consultant working here - Am I right to be cross?

Exporting 25 gig of data and copying it and importing has many risks. The amount of archivelogs produced will slow you down hugely as will index creation.
You will probably have to have several goes. And disk space is getting tight on box2
I would suggest you use transportable table spaces. I donít think they are currently transportable currently otherwise you could have used the backup I am doing now.

I have freed some space on box2 but please donít start copying until my test is done. Its pretty hard to get a test slot and copying large files would slow things down.

You could also use the rman backups.

Also please do me the courtesy of letting me know when you are embarking on exercises that will have a major impact on our servers. I am after all supposed to be looking after all the Linux Boxes and all the databases.
