I exported from a 32 bit RH 2.1 server with 9.2.0.5.0 to a 64 bit machine with RH 3 with 9.2.0.4.0.
The tables don't appear after the import.  The logfiles say 'skipping'.  Any idea why its skipping?

You could ensure that the target user that you are importing into exists already and has a default tablespace other than SYSTEM or TEMP.  Also, check your parameter file to see if "SHOW=Y" is set.  You didn't say what command line syntax you used. What were the userids involved? Who was the "FROMUSER" and "TOUSER"?  Did you do the export/import via the OEM GUI or the command line? Your posting did not show any error messages when the GRANT was done on the CHANGELOG table. If the table did not exist then there would be an error message stating that the object does not exist. Since there are no such error messages in your posting, the objects should exist. Try checking the catalog for the objects by doing a simple query.

SELECT object_name, object_type, owner from dba_objects where object_name = 'CHANGELOG';

To export:


FILE=owb9i2.dmp
OWNER=owb9i2
GRANTS=Y
ROWS=Y
LOG=owb9i2.xport.log

From the command line
exp owb9i2/xxxxx parfile=owb-parfile.dat

Exported with some warnings about questionable statistics.

Again, change the parameter SHOW=Y to SHOW=N or delete the parameter from your parameter file. When SHOW=Y it displays what it will do, including displaying the DDL, but it will not create the tables.


Oracle docs:

When SHOW=y, the contents of the export file are listed to the display and not imported. The SQL statements contained in the export are displayed in the order in which Import will execute them.

The SHOW parameter can be used only with the FULL=y, FROMUSER, TOUSER, or TABLES parameter.
