For what its worth, when I used to do this, I would export to an export_file, and the ksh script would then cat the export_file | rsh to a destination_file (the pipe), (HP-UX 64bit). Import would import the destination_file, (the pipe).

Export needed to start first as I recall, then import can start, and then they both ran simultaneiously.

Subject: ** imp using multiple compressed exp dump files


   I did a export using split pipe compressed. Now I am trying import using :
nohup cat xaa xab xac xad > split_pipe & nohup uncompress -c split_pipe > i_pipe & nohup imp file=i_pipe ..

but I am getting error
IMP-00009: abnormal end of export file
IMP-00000: Import terminated unsuccessfully

I created the pipes using mknod similar to export which had no problem terminated without warnings. Any idea what can be the problem. The data is too big to do it without split or compress. Thanks for help.
