    URGENT URGENT URGENT URGENTURGENT URGENT URGENT URGENT



    Gents,

    As part of a migration process, I need to create a oracle 7.3.4 dump file from an Oracle 8.1.6 database.

    I know that I have to run the catexp7 script & the earlier - EXP73 utility on 8.1.6 database to create a 7.3.4 dump.

    But when I do this, the exp73 utitlity does not connect to my 8.1.6 database. I have both 7.3.4 and 8.1.6 on the same server.

    How do I get exp73 to connect to the 8.1.6 database and create a 7.3.4 dump file.

    Thanks,
    Nizar

    Hi, here comes a tip:
    Just declare your 8.1.6 database in the tnsnames.ora, and run the export with the alias
    (I mean exp73 user/passwd@alias options...)

    Cheers

    You've got it!
    something like:

    ALIAS.WORLD =
    (DESCRIPTION =
    (ADDRESS_LIST =
    (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = MACHINE)(PORT = 1521))
    (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = MACHINE)(PORT = 1526))
    )
    (CONNECT_DATA =
    (SID = SID)
    (SERVER = DEDICATED)
    )
    )

    Cheers

    If you are doing this at the command prompt
    you can try
    SET ORACLE_SID= WHATEVER73SID
    BEFORE DOING THE
    IMP73...IMPORT
