    Unanswered: oracle database migration

    We are migrating our oracle database version from a unix(Sun OS) to unix(AIX). What would be the steps involved (on a high level) if I go with the export/import option ?

    Export’s job is to create a platform-independent DMP file that contains all of the required metadata (in the form of CREATE and ALTER statements), and optionally the data itself to re-create tables, schemas, or even entire databases. Import’s sole job in life is to read these DMP files, and execute the DDL statements and load any data it finds.
