    Using expdp you can export to a lower version.
    You should be able to use impdp 10g to import that data.
    Obviously you can also use the NETWORK_LINK parameter in the 10g command line to have impdp connect direclty to the 11g database.
    I wouldn't use exp and imp, and they are also officially obsolete.

  • Export -import error  'SYS.DBMS_DATAPUMP'

    1-->Hi I exported data from oracle10 g by imp utility.on the same server
    Now I want to import the dump file on the oracle 9i user.
    when I give command on linux server
    c:\> imp username/[email protected] ..

    whts the error ?
    3-How Can I create the replica of schema from oracle10g to oracle 9i.?

    To transfer data from any lower version you must use the lower version exp against the higher version database.
    So 9i exp against 10g database.
    Apart from that, datapump is incompatible with exp/imp
    This has been posted NUMEROUS times!!!
    Is there any reason why you can't use the 'Search Forum' function, prior to posting?

    No, you must use the imp utility from target database which is 10g.

  • Exp/Imp In Oracle 10g client

    Hi All,
    I want to take one schema export from Oracle 10g Client. I am in new Oracle 10g.
    In oracle 9i, we can using exp/imp command for Export and Import from Client itself.
    I heard about in Oracle 10g, we can use Expdb/Impdb in Server only. Is there any possibility to take exp/imp in Client also.
    Pls help me...
    Cheers,
    Moorthy.GS

    To add up to expdb from oracle client
    NETWORK_LINK
    Default: none
    Purpose
    Enables an export from a (source) database identified by a valid database link. The data from the source database instance is written to a dump file set on the connected database instance.
    Syntax and Description
    NETWORK_LINK=source_database_link
    The NETWORK_LINK parameter initiates an export using a database link. This means that the system to which the expdp client is connected contacts the source database referenced by the source_database_link, retrieves data from it, and writes the data to a dump file set back on the connected system.
    The source_database_link provided must be the name of a database link to an available database. If the database on that instance does not already have a database link, you or your DBA must create one. For more information about the CREATE DATABASE LINK statement, see Oracle Database SQL Reference.
    If the source database is read-only, then the user on the source database must have a locally managed tablespace assigned as the default temporary tablespace. Otherwise, the job will fail. For further details about this, see the information about creating locally managed temporary tablespaces in the Oracle Database Administrator's Guide.
    Restrictions
    When the NETWORK_LINK parameter is used in conjunction with the TABLES parameter, only whole tables can be exported (not partitions of tables).
    The only types of database links supported by Data Pump Export are: public, fixed-user, and connected-user. Current-user database links are not supported.
    Example
    The following is an example of using the NETWORK_LINK parameter. The source_database_link would be replaced with the name of a valid database link that must already exist.
    expdp hr/hr DIRECTORY=dpump_dir1 NETWORK_LINK=source_database_linkDUMPFILE=network_export.dmp LOGFILE=network_export.log

    I'm not able figure out why a conversion is taking place even though the same character set is used in 10G.
    I would be greatful to you guys if can suggest a way to avoid this conversion as i fear data will be affected kindly need your suggestions for the same and thank you.
    Regards
    Parikshit

    based on your nsl parameter settings, we can see that both databases use the same characterset. so, characterset conversion should not take place. the reason why you are facing these warnings is due to environment variables.
    you should set NLS_LANG environment variables both before exporting and importing. Then warnings should disappear. For example, in your case you can set NLS_LANG=.WE8ISO8859P1 (please note that I have omitted language and territory parts here)
    Try setting enviroment variables and then perform export and import again.

  • Can't recreate 9i to 10g with EXP/IMP

    I've been trying to duplicate a database from 9i to 10g. I'm only interested to recreate the users, roles, database links,
    etc. The (production) server that has 9i is outdated, and the 10g is on a new server. I've created a new database on the 10g server, and created all the tablespaces that reflects the 9i server. Next, I used the EXP command on 9i:
    exp system/password FILE=allusers.DMP LOG=allusers.log OWNER=(*list of users*) COMPRESS=N ROWS=N DIRECT=Y CONSTRAINTS=Y INDEXES=Y;
    In the 10g server, I used the import command:
    imp system/password FULL=Y CONSTRAINTS=Y INDEXES=Y FILE=allusers.DMP LOG=allusers.log ROWS=n;
    When I try the IMP command in 10g, I get an error that the users doesn't exist. That only way I can think of to resolve this is
    if I export the entire database from 9i. Wouldn't that conflict with the 10g SYSTEM tablespace? IE:
    exp system/password FULL=Y FILE=full.dmp LOG=allusers.log COMPRESS=N ROWS=N DIRECT=Y CONSTRAINTS=Y INDEXES=Y;
    I even tried to import one user at a time, and it didn't work. IE:
    imp system/password FROMUSER=user1 CONSTRAINTS=Y INDEXES=Y FILE=allusers.DMP LOG=allusers.log ROWS=n;
    I'm stuck. Please help.

  • Migrating from 9i to 10g through exp/imp

    Hi,
    We need to migrate a database on 9i in HP-UNIX to 10g in IBM AIX. Can you please tell me whether i can export data in 9i with 9i export utility and import it into 10g using 10g data pump utility for faster import ?
    We don't have the 10g software installed in the HP-UNIX platform.
    And what other alternatives we have to reduce the amount of time for the migration process as it's a critical Production database ?
    Thanks,
    Jayanta

    I believe that Justin is correct that if you use exp to unload the data you will need to use imp and not impdp to reload the data.
    To speed up the cross-platform exp/imp process I suggest you consider running multiple concurrent exp/imp jobs. You can generate a table=list into a spool file using sql. You can give each large table its own exp job and bunch the small tables.
    Depending on how your database objects are organized you might also be albe to export by owner or a combination of owner, tables= exports.
    You can use a full=y with the rows=n option to grab the public synonyms, non-owning users, packages, etc.... not brought in by the prior exp/imp.

  • Can I use 9i imp/exp utility after installing 10g

    Hello, all:
    I have two database co-exist in one machine, one is 9i, another one is 10.2, which was just installed recently . Now I need to imp/exp the 9i database, I can't invoke 9i imp/exp utility anymore, even under 9i oracle_home, I can only get 10g's imp/exp screen comes up, can someone help me? Is there anyway that I can use both version of utility in the same machine?
    Thanks a lot in advance.
    wendy

    I can't invoke 9i imp/exp utility anymoreThat might be because the 10G_ORA_HOME\BIN appears first in your PATH environment variable. Either put 9i_HOME\BIN first in your PATH or navigate to the BIN directory of 9i home and run the export/import from there.

    Remarks:
    1) IMPORT can read export dump files created by EXPORT release 5.1.22 and
    higher (up to same version).
    2) An Oracle5 or Oracle6 export dump and an Oracle7 IMPORT:
    see the Oracle Utilities Manual, Chapter 2 "Import" for special
    considerations to keep in mind.
    3) To export from Oracle7 for import into an Oracle6 database: user SYS
    must run script CATEXP6.SQL on the Oracle7 database first (this script
    needs to be run only once to have the version6 views been created).
    4) To export from Oracle8, Oracle8i for import into an Oracle7 database:
    user SYS must run script CATEXP7.SQL on the Oracle8/8i database first
    (this script needs to be run only once in order to create the version7
    views).
