I have found a 9i version of exp and put it on the 10g Instance but it will not run.
This error comes up:
exp9i: error while loading shared libraries: libclntsh.so.9.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Let me guess - you're running on Linux? I don't think you can just copy an executable from one version to another; each version of Oracle has specific requirements as to the kernel version and shared libraries. If I were you I would set up an Oracle 9i instance on a separate box and run exp from there. You can download Oracle 9i and use it freely for development purposes.
Yes you are right we are running Oracle on linux and I did copy the executable from are app server.
How do you run it from that server to a database on another machine? What would be the procedure or syntax?
Thanks Again for your help....
I cant find anything about using an export executable on one machine(9i)to create an export from another(10g) to create an export file that will be sent to another 3rd parties machine(9i).
Do you have to be spoon feed!!!
1) establish a connection from your 9i machine to your 10g machine by modifying the tnsnames.ora on the 9i machine.
2) run the 9i catexp on your 10g server as sys.
3) run the exp on your 9I machine by using exp userid=account/password@MY10GMachineSid ....
4) rerun the catexp from your 10g server on your 10g server to reenable your 10g export.
5) send the 9i export to your client.
Be aware, if you are trying to export any structures that are native to 10g and not 9i, the export will not work. Also the patch level for the 9I is critical. If you have patch level 188.8.131.52 on your machine and the client is running patch level 184.108.40.206 (lower patch level) they will not be able to read in the export.
