I am in a pickle I need to copy a RAC ASM oracle 10g database from a linux box to a different linux server.
I have been advised that the simpliest method is to shutdown the database then copy the files. I have no problem doing this as I have done this many time before with a single NON RAC database in the past.
I found this to be a problem firstly because ASM makes the files invisible so I have found out how to sort this by using FTP and setting up a port.
Secondly when I shutdown the database and the instances I loose my FTP connection
Any Ideas how I can achieve this
