10g to 11g Schema Refresh

Hello All,

Here is my scenario ..

I have a 10g (10.2.0.4) Database  - Database A and i have cloned the same Database and upgraded it to 11g R2 (11.2.1.0) Database - Database B.

DATABASE A and DATABASE B has same Schema structure also.

I need to refresh Database B Schemas from Database A schemas.

The following are my questions :

1.) Will this be compatible, since i am doing an export/import of schemas from 10g to 11g.
2.) Should i need to do additional operations like validations.
3.) Is there any other way to do this other than export/import or Materialized Views.

Thanks

Max

create a database link from the 11g db to the 10g db and use dbms_datapump


declare
   v_handle NUMBER;
BEGIN
   v_handle:=
   DBMS_DATAPUMP.OPEN (operation   => 'IMPORT',
                       job_mode    => 'SCHEMA',
                       remote_link => 'YOUR_DB_LINK'
                               );

   DBMS_DATAPUMP.metadata_filter (handle => v_handle,
                                  NAME   => 'SCHEMA_LIST',
                                  VALUE  => '''SCHEMA1'',''SCHEMA2'''
                               );

   DBMS_DATAPUMP.set_parameter (handle => v_handle,
                                NAME   => 'TABLE_EXISTS_ACTION',
                                VALUE  => 'REPLACE'
                               );


   dbms_datapump.add_file(handle => v_handle,
                          filename => 'your_log_file_name_here.log',
                          directory => 'DATA_PUMP_DIR',
                          filetype=>3);


   DBMS_DATAPUMP.set_parallel(v_handle, 4);

   DBMS_DATAPUMP.start_job (v_handle);
END;

for your export/import,  use expdp  and impdp.

if you must use exp/imp (can't think of reason why you would have to though)
then use 10g exp and 11g imp

why the B?


penalty grades are not appropriate when you have not asked for additional information or explained any deficiency
