I thought it worked just like imp, unless its a full and the create user commands are embedded in the "dmp" file then the user has to be precreated? It's monday so I could be way off base :)

Data Pump schema mode import

Sent by:  

Dear list,   

It's my understanding that the schema will be created if it does not exist before a data pump import.
If that is true, why the impdp command below failed and I had to create the schema for it to work?

$ impdp system/xxxxxx SCHEMAS=TSDBA \
> directory=pump_dir dumpfile=tsdbaups60d0pump.dmp \
> logfile=tsdbaups60d0pump.imp
