>> i have to move that database to another oracle server

     are you upgrading or in same version?

      if in same version, tts (trasportable tablespace) is an option.

     if upgrading, imp/exp would be  another option.

Be aware that the term "database" means something different in Oracle than in SQL Server!  In Oracle, a "database" (or instance)  is the complete system.  In SQL Server, a "database" is just one part of the complete system.

Also, SQL Server comes from a company that specializes in producing software tools, so their tools are quite easy to use.  Oracle is a company that makes a great database (and that database can run on most operating systems!)  but the Oracle tools are not as easy to use as the SQL Server tools.

Basically, if you want to copy an entire Oracle database from one server to another, it is not so difficult.  You just shut the database down, then copy all of the: data, log, control and init files to the other server (preferably into identical file locations) then if you have the same version of the Oracle database software installed there, you just start the database there.
