Migrate database to Exadata with DBMS_FILE_TRANSFER

(Doc ID 1902618.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 29, 2015

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 10.2.0.1 to 12.1.0.1 [Release 10.2 to 12.1]
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)
Linux x86-64

Goal

Database migration to Exadata can be accomplished in a number of ways, as discussed in
Oracle® Database High Availability Best Practices 11g Release 2 (11.2)
Chapter 14 Reducing Downtime for Planned Maintenance
Section 14.2.7 Database Platform or Location Migration.

One way to perform this task is the Transportable Tablespaces for Platform Migration. The method described in this document can be used to migrate any database (version 10.2 to 11.2.0.4), from any platform, to 11.2.0.4 and later on Exadata. We have successfully performed the migration from Solaris SPARC (database versions 10.2.0.1, 10.2.0.4 and 11.2.0.3), IBM AIX (database version 11.1.0.7) and Linux (database version 11.2.0.3) to 11.2.0.4 and 12.1.0.1.0 on Exadata.
