Hi Dustin,

When you say 36 hours - is that pur export timings - or you are doing some sort of manual gzip or tar at the end of it for compression at the end ? 36Hours for a 3TB sounds very poor speed. If I were using 11g on a 3TB db - I would consider using goldengate for a seamless switchover on a go-live date.

Content-Type: text/plain; charset="US-ASCII" 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.
