    Migrating Oracle 7.1.3 to 8.1.7 on Unix with export/imp

    Hello everyone!

    I am planning on migrating a small database from 7.1.3 to 8.1.7.4 by export/import. Now, I first thought you had to make small steps towards 8i; first to 7.3.4 and then 8i. Seems that on metalink there is a document with export/import matrix and it seems I could skip that step in between and go straight forward. Does anyone have any experience with this?
    Thanks!

    Thanks for your response!
    However, I plan on migrating directly from 7.1.3 to 8.1.7.4.
    That should be interesting if that'll work. As far as I can see, there shouldn't be any objections but at the same time, no one can really confirm..
    Testing is of course a big part in the process.

    Have you tried metalink?

    There is a fairly comprehensive guide to migration paths.

    Good luck.

    Yep, I have tried Metalink. I found the compatibility matrix for export/import and it is conclusive: you CAN migrate directly from 7.1.3 to 8.1.7.4
    Needless to say this saves whole lot of time! (side-note: I can use this method since it is a fairly small database).

    Thanks for the input!
