Re: Copying Backup of 32-bit Win2000 10g Database into a 64 Bit Win2003 Server

3 years ago we made an upgrade from 32-Bit Oracle 9 to 64-Bit Oracle 10 and we now have many corrupted system objects in the database although the database is running until now.
The Oracle support afterwards published informations about changing to 64 Bit.
Actually I do not know if someone must still pay attention because there are existing patch sets that did not exist before.

Thanks to those who replied.
The source database is from a Windows 2000 32-bit environment. The target database is a Windows 2003 64-bit environment. Both are
I am trying to copy a database backup from February 2010; Hence I have access to the source
database as it now stands (The Win2000 environment still exists), but not to the data that I am
trying to copy (Other than the backup).

If it were a matter of copying the current database from Win 2000 32- bit to Win2003 64-bit, I
would likely use an export/import.
