Good morning (or afternoon). I'm importing an export I made on an 8.1.7 database into a 184.108.40.206 version. Unfortunately I'm getting IMP-00008 errors which seems to indicate either corruption in the dmp file or that I need to report the problem to Oracle themselves. Before I do the latter, I wonder whether anyone here can share experiences of this kind of thing. A few facts which might be relevant:
OS: Aix 5.2
dmp files are compressed and spread over 10 files in all. I am uncompressing the files using a pipe into the imp process.
The following is the par file I am using:
file=PLAY01.dmp PLAY02.dmp PLAY03.dmp PLAY05.dmp PLAY06.dmp PLAY07.dmp PLAY08.dmp PLAY09.dmp PLAY10.dmp
Any and all opinions/suggestions gratefully received. There's no particular urgency, but it would be nice to resolve this before trying it on the production version. Thanks.
If I have to choose between two evils, I always like to choose the one I haven't tried yet.
