Dbms_file_transfer Corrupts Dbf File When Copying between endians (Doc ID 1262965.1)

Last updated on APRIL 13, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 10.2.0.4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Using DBMS_FILE_TRANSFER.get_file on a linux host to transfer over a read only tablespace file from Solaris. The file has a totally different checksum to the original on Solaris. If 'scp' is used to transfer the file across, than RMAN-convert works but the CONVERT fails with the file transferred with DBMS_FILE_TRANSFER.
