 += Oracle Dump =
 +Normally when creating backups you should prefer a [[oraclerman|RMAN backup]]. However, this is not the way to go when you want to transfer a database across an operating system. So say you have an Oracle database on AIX and you want to transfer it to Windows, you should use another method, simply being a dump. I have gathered here the required commands and variables you need just for the dump. If you need a script that creates this, use [[oraclerman|RMAN backup]] as an example and work from there.
 += Oracle Dump =
 +<code bash>
 +DATESTAMP=$(date +%Y%m%d%H%M)
 +export ORACLE_HOME=/​opt/​oracle/​product/​10.2
 +# Connect to the database instance and make the dump as system
 +${ORACLE_HOME}/​bin/​exp system/<​oraclesyspasswd>​ FULL=y DIRECT=y FILE=$DUMP LOG=$LOG
 +/​usr/​local/​bin/​tar -cf - $LOG $DUMP | /​usr/​bin/​gzip > $BACKUPFILE
 +rm $LOG
 +rm $DUMP
 +Or without a password in the script:
 +${ORACLE_HOME}/​bin/​exp \'/ as sysdba\'​ FULL=y DIRECT=y FILE=$DUMP LOG=$LOG
