    You may copy file across servers as long as the two servers run the same OS versions or of the OS of same type and same oracle versions. The file organization is to my knowleged is software controlled rather than a hardware. When you write the data into a file, the storage at the backend is inode specific. So, as long as the OS are of same, then they should be able to translate the inode structure.

    Say for example, you can copy the files from the sunfire 880 to sunfire 440. If you look in the hardware organization is different. But it is the OS that would have to support the copy process.

    Pl. don't under estimate the postings. Remember you know what you know now is because someone had answered your question(s) in the past. If you know the answer pl. be glad to post your thoughts. If they were wrong some one will correct. If you don't know then just read them and ask questions if you have. This would be my short advice to you.

    Thanx,
    Sam
