  Thanks for the suggestion. I can't use transportable tablespaces as this is Standard Edition (sorry, forgot to mention that) and they're an EE only feature.

I found that was recently released for VMS, so I've upgraded the VMS box to the same level as the Linux box, but the problem persists - I think it's time to declare this approach a dead.

I'll work out an approach that uses export/import (or look at using another Linux server for DR purposes). Received on Fri Feb 13 2009 - 22:58:56 CST
