    Smile Unanswered: Download Oracle Catalog Tables Directly to a Different Server or Client Machine

    Hey Everyone!

    1) I have 20+ Oracle DBs that I am managing data models of.
    2) I need to download the database metadata catalog (mainly tables/views/synonyms) from these DBs directly to a stand alone server machine.
    3) Stand alone server machine is Windows, Oracle servers are solaris.

    Question: is it possible to connect from the stand alone server machine to Oracle DB server (running on a separate machine) and download its metadata catalog, how?

    I am trying to avoid having to first login to the OS shell of the Oracle DB server (I got 20+ physical servers) and instead need to connect and download the metadata from/to a single machine from these Oracle DB servers.

    Please help... I am hoping it is possible via the Oracle instant client, but thought to double-check before spending too much time going in the wrong direction. All thoughts, ideas and recommendations are very much welcome!

    Best Regards,

    Any ER package should be able to collect the metadata of a number of databases, and present it nicely. All from a client. Redgate also has a product called Schema Compare that can do other things. You can also write up your own scripts to collect this data in a single place using any of the drivers (jdbc, odbc, .NET, etc.)to connect directly to Oracle (assuming all of them are listening on the network).
