    to do Export backup in a remote machine

    objective- To take a Export backup from oracle 8.1.7 database
    located remote.

    I have to access the bin directory of that oracle database from my system itself and take a export dump.

    Two questions

    Remote export backup is possible . ?
    how to do that in my case.

    Thanks in advance

    Hi,
    as i see it, you have 2 options:
    1. Install oracle client on your machine and perform the exports direclty to your machine.
    2. use dbms_job/at/crontab (depends on the machine running the Oracle server), perform export on the machine and mail/ftp/copy to your computer automatically.

    Cheers,

    See this is the scenario

    I am in US and want to access the oracle database running on one system in India.

    In my desktop i have oracle client installed

    First i established a VPN connection.

    Then thru net configuration assistant i configured the host
    name,sid,& service of the remote database and test connection test was successful.

    Then i tried to use export Command from the bin directory of my client machine giving the remote username and password it doesnot take it. it says Oracle is not available.

    how can i take a remote backup .

    install oracle server on your machine
    and then
    exp system/mgr@ file= yadda yadda

    Export is not part of the the client toolset

    I got the solution it is working

    what is did was

    d:\oracle\ora81\bin\exp userid=test/test@indiatest file = ' ' log=' '
    owner=test,test1 ;

    Just executed at the command prompt at my desktop. started export backup.

    Thanks for the help and ur time.

    Just learnt now that if u give userid/passwd@SERVICE NAME then it works remotely.

    one addition to this post,

    you don't have to install Oracle server on the machine to do exp/imp remotely, all you need is just the Oracle client which already have exp/imp utilities, that's all you need
