Can I clone a Tablespace from one Database into another without using Import?

Hi All, this should be easy. I've know about cloning Databases, but can you clone a Tablespace from one Database to another? The reason I ask is that I have a critical path that requires us to Import a 100+ million row table and Index rebuilds that take over 3 hours.

If cloning this physical Datafile(Tablespace) is possible and both Databases use the same Schema name and Db object name what are the steps so that I can create an environment to test this out.

Again thanks,

Hi,

investigate transportable tablespaces.  using oracle exp, you can export the metadata about a tablespace and import that metadata into another database.
steps :

1. mark tablespace as readonly
2. export the tablespace as a transportable tablespace
3. copy the tablespace to the destination database
4. mark the original tablespace read/write
5. import the tablespace into the destination database

this will be a quicker transfer of the objects than using dblinks / copy command and import / export.

good luck :)
