Copy a DB from Solaris to HP-UX
15/04/2018 11:47
I have to copy a DB from Solaris to HP-UX. The versions of Oracle andthe db names will be the same. I have one major hitch and question. The hitch - export/import is not an option. I can get a cold backupfor laying the db down on the HP-UX box, but from then on, I will needto roll forward using logs until the decision is made to cut overbetween the two boxes. My question: Will there be any OS compatibilty issues for the control, data and logfiles? Meaning, will Oracle on HP-UX be able to read and write tocontrol, data and log files created by Oracle on the Soalris box? Thanks in advance.

Look: you might get lucky. These are two Unixes, after all. But it's notsupported, and I wouldn't bet on it. The only supported way of moving fromone O/S to the other is via export and import. Anything else is down totesting, crossed fingers, and hefty dollops of prayer to the Almighty.

You can clone the database easily in the normalcold backup manner, but when you cone to start it, it won't. Trust me, I'mnot a doctor! Export/import or create a new database and pull the data over a dblink oreven, use SQL*Plus' COPY command (with a decent commitrate and arraysize)and you can do it without a link.
