In 8.1.5, an import FROMUSER/TOUSER including a table with LOB clauses cannot import the table and its LOB segments into the TOUSER's tablespace though the Import utility can be forced into placing objects into the TOUSER's tablespace using the traditional method:

1. Set QUOTA=0 on the FROMUSER's tablespace for the schema which will own the objects after import.

2. Set that TOUSER's DEFAULT TABLESPACE to the intended destination.

3. Make sure the user has sufficient QUOTA on the destination tablespace.

4. Perform the import.
The import utility will still try to import those objects into the original tablespace.

Even if the TOUSER has no QUOTA on the FROMUSER's tablespace, the operation will fail and the utility will not check the TOUSER's default tablespace and will not try to import the objects into the TOUSER's tablespace.
