Thanks, but as i said before this is a 9i database I am looking to migrate across different platforms i.e solaris to hpux. 10gr1 allows for xtts - 9i does not, for 9i the platform has to remain the same:
Thanks again.

tranportable tablespaces were introduced in 8i.
In 9i the feature was widely available and relatively
error free, you should be able to use it.
Or at least, so does sayeth Part No. A96520-01,page 12-3,
the Oracle Data Warehousing Guide, release 2(9.2).
Look it up, whenever "unbreakable Oracle" decides
to return the tahiti manuals to the www...

For certains reason the database that I need to migrate cannot be upgraded - which would open up a lot more options. I'm hoping people out there could help with their personal experiences, if any, with respect to what they found helped the best during this process. I'd appreciate any input, thanks
