We are running 11.2.
We are looking into the using transportable tablespaces now. Never used them before so trying to figure all that out . Right now just trying to figure out the best options since we have a pretty small window of down time to get this done.

Not sure what version you are running, but how about transportable tablespaces using rman to do endian switch?

best way to convert from unix to linux

Sent by:<>

I have a 3TB database that needs to be moved from hp-ux to linux. I need to know the fastest way to do this. Tried doing a datapump export (parallel 6) and it took over 36 hours which is too long. Really need to be able to this is in under 24 hours.

Can anything be done with any kind of replication or rman? Keep in mind there is a page layout issue going from unix to linux.
