I am in the process of performing an import on an export file from Oracle 8i to Oracle 9i.
invoking the import utility, I get this:
[oracle@Linux2005 OraHome]$ imp
Import: Release 188.8.131.52.0 - Production on Thu Sep 9 18:44:06 2004

List contents of import file only (yes/no): no >
I answered yes to the next two questions. and off things went ..
Finally.Import terminated succesfully without warnings..........
SQL> select tablespace_name from dba_tablespaces;
11 rows selected.
I get the feeling that no tablespaces are the contents where imported ??
I also tried the following:
[oracle@Linux2005 oracle]$ imp system/tiger FROMUSER=ALCIE FULL=Y 080904.dmp IGNORE=N
LRM-00105: '080904.dmp' is not a legal Boolean for 'full'
IMP-00022: failed to process parameters, type 'IMP HELP=Y' for help
IMP-00000: Import terminated unsuccessfully
imp system/tiger FROMUSER=ALCIE FULL=Y FILE=080904.dmp IGNORE=N
which also gave a bunch or errors....
Should I create a DB manually ?
