Thanks for the info. True, I did not mention all of the details..I
find out whether this restore of a Win2000 32 bit DB into a 64 bit Win2003
envirornment will work.
I am recreating the control file, and moving the datafiles to the Win2003 server.
It is actually an SAP database, so the first step I need to do is run
procedure that creates the SAP kernel, the Oracle services, etc...
I may need to adapt some parameters in the spfile or *.ora file.
