oracle import script -how to build

folks

below is a database export script

@echo off

 

exp 'sys/Sr20072006@MAXDEMO as sysdba' full=Y file=D:\Backup\MAXDEMO\exp_maxdemo.dmp log=D:\Backup\MAXDEMO\exp_maxdemo.log grants=y indexes=y compress=y direct=n rows=y

how can i convert this so i get a database import script?

If you plan to use export and import to copy data from one Oracle database to another, this can work (and I use that technique each weekend in an automated job that reloads our test database with current, production data) but you need to do some work in the import database first!  Before running import, you need to:
1. disable (or drop) all constraints on tables that will be loaded by the import
2. truncate every table that will be loaded by the import
3. disable any/all triggers on tables that will be loaded by the import

Then you run the import (with "ignore=Y") and that will recreate/re-enable the constraints and triggers after it loads the data.

It looks to me like you a Maximo system that uses an Oracle database.  We also have a small Maximo system here, but Maximo is certainly not optimized for Oracle, and the folks at MRO don't know Oracle all that well.

imp 'sys/Sr20072006@MAXDEMO as sysdba' full=Y file=D:\Backup\MAXDEMO\exp_maxdemo.dmp log=D:\Backup\MAXDEMO\exp_maxdemo.log grants=y indexes=y compress=y direct=n rows=y


Another example:

c:>imp parfile =imp.par

where the file is:

USERID="sys/reks@test as sysdba"
FILE=d:\ora10g\m\main\imp\07_15_2005_m.dmp
SHOW=n
IGNORE=y
GRANTS=y
ROWS=y
FULL=y
LOG=d:\ora10g\m\main\imp\imp.log

FYI, compress and direct are not imp options...

Prior to the import, you should clear the data you need to reimport, that is dropping the tables/indexes or truncating them to avoid ORA-0001 (unique contraint violated) and things like that.

If your aim is to rebuild your DB frol scratch using dump file, you should include in your script the create database statement.

The only parameters that are usefull to you are :
full=y
file=...
log=.../imp.log


If tables already exist when importing, you should set the ignore=Y parameter.
ignore=y will also allow you to reuse the existing DB files...

Another trap:

You have to set NLS_LANG environment (registry) parameter to a good value if you use letters that aren't english. On bot sites - export and import.
Because the defaulut is US7ASCII and the dump will loose all not english letters ...
