Oracle 9i to Oracle 9i from Sun Solaris to Windows 2003 Server.

I have a Sun Solaris Server with Oracle 9i database currently running and working,  was asked to move/migrate this Unix database of Oracle to a Windows 2003 Server box in order to run IBM Clearquest to keep everything on one box.  I know how to move databases from Unix to Unix not sure about the ramifications or instructions to move from Unix to a Windows Platform.  Do I use the export/import utility as usual?  Any issues? I also have 3 SID's on this Sun Box that needs to go over to the Windows Server.   Please let me know thanks

It is not a good idea to keep Oracle alongside application.
You have to use Windows 2003 Advanced Server and install WSRM to prevent system meltdown.
Moving includes full database dump and restore - disk formats are different.

I know, I dont like moving Oracle from Unix to Windows either, but it's a requirement. What is WSRM?  We have to do everything Manually here since we do not have RMAN and such.

It is resource policy tool which allows for example to give Oracle 10% of CPU and all the RAM it needs while webapp overloads and vice-versa.

Is it a free download? if so link?  So export and import is ok there are no special instructions? The item libraries are currently on Windows so I do not have to worry about any file support just Oracle.

what do you mean SID structure?  I have multiple SIDs on the Unix box, will I have to change the SID connection each time I need to connect?  how about the slashes from unix to windows? will the meta data be corrupted?
