script to create database dumps of multiple tables with different dumpfiles.

Hi Guys,
I have following script export  multiple tables with different dumpfiles.
Please suggest me where I am wrong.


#!/bin/bash
set -x
 if [ $# -lt 3 ]; then
  echo "usage : $0 <sid> <owner> <tab>"
 exit 1
fi
sid=$1
. ~/dbst.env $sid

owner=$2
tab=$3

dumpfile=/allant/"${sid}_${owner}_${tab}.dmp"
 logfile=/allant/"${sid}_${owner}_${tab}.log"

exp "/ as sysdba" log=$logfile   file =$dumpfile tables=${owner}.${tab} rows=yes indexes=no consistent=y statistics=none

You cannot export "as sysdba".

PS: Create an externally identified user:
CREATE USER OPS$ORACLE
  IDENTIFIED EXTERNALLY
  DEFAULT TABLESPACE USERS
  TEMPORARY TABLESPACE TEMP
  PROFILE DEFAULT
  ACCOUNT UNLOCK;
  -- 1 Role
  GRANT DBA TO OPS$ORACLE;
  ALTER USER OPS$ORACLE DEFAULT ROLE ALL;

Open in new window

and execute exp like this:
exp / log=$logfile file =$dumpfile tables=${owner}.${tab} rows=yes indexes=no consistent=y statistics=none

Perhaps remove the space(s0 between the equal "=" signs. like in:
... file =$dumpfile ...
#-Here--^

Since when can you not export as SYSDBA?  That used to be a requirement of transportable tablespaces.

I recall you had some hoops to jump through to get the quotes correct.

In fact, current documentation still references the fact that you can (and need to in certain situations):

Invoking Export as SYSDBA
SYSDBA is used internally and has specialized functions; its behavior is not the same as for generalized users. Therefore, you should not typically need to invoke Export as SYSDBA except in the following situations:

   
At the request of Oracle technical support
   
When importing a transportable tablespace set

Which is not the case here...
Perhaps I should have posted "should not" instead.

OK, I'll agree with "should not export as SYSDBA".  However, to do what is trying to be accomplished here, you need a pretty powerful user.  The user would at least need the EXP_FULL_DATABASE role.  Using SYSDBA would just be easier, probably not the best way, but easier.

Since I'm definitely not a master of UNIX/Linux shell scripting syntax, I prefer to keep this as simple as possible.  For me that means putting all of the Oracle export parameters into a parameter file that "exp" can read when it is called, and that I find easy to edit, understand and/or test, and that leaves me with very simple, one-line syntax at the command line:

$ORACLE_HOME/exp parfile=/home/oracle/scripts/exp.ctl

Here is an example of a parameter file (named: "exp.ctl") that "exp" can read when it is called:

(This one will have "exp" split the output into up to four files, each one almost 2GB in size.)

userid=exp_user/exp_user
file=(/export/exp_LDB1/exp_1.dmp,/export/exp_LDB1/exp_2.dmp,
/export/exp_LDB1/exp_3.dmp,/export/exp_LDB1/exp_4.dmp)
filesize=1980M
log=/var/ora_logs/exp.log
full=Y
rows=Y
indexes=Y
constraints=Y
grants=Y
consistent = Y
