Migrating machines - Oracle 10g installation

Hi,

I currently have a HW SUN machine that runs Solaris and Oracle 10g and on top on it some enterprise appl. that needs to connect to the Oracle DB and that is connected to a SUN disk array.

We will have to migrate everything to a new SUN machine that will connect to the very same disk array.

So, my plan is to to install Solaris on thsi new machine and install Oracle 10g as well... which files do I need to copy from the old machine to the new one in order for me to connect to the saem DB I used to connect? init.ora..?

Is it necessary to install the Oracel SW in this new mahcine or I could just copy everything from the old amchine to the new one some remote copy? - evrything below the ORACLE_HOME.

Pls be aware that the new machine, as I mention, will be connected to the same disk array...

Tks
Joao

Yes this is a replacement server.

I agree and I will check if there is any local disk for oracle... dont think so... I think the localdisk is only for solaris... - only root / - I would have to create the oracle user in the new server, right? Is there anything else below the - lets say oracle_home - that is relevant - Im assuming tha the oracle_home is the mount point for the external disk?

Lets say that the disks where the oracle is located are not local.. so I can mount them in the new server correct?

Tks,
joao

Tks for the reply!

I will make sure its on the external drive.... I wasnt able to connect there yet... anyway if its in an external drive its fine..

I will get back here soon..

If only the dbf files are in an external drive, I will have to:
- When oracle user and the dba group are created on the new server, make sure that they have the same ids as the old server
- Get all the kernel parameters set up and the correct kernel patches on the system
- Install Oracle in the new machine
- Check listener.ora and tnsnames for the server name...
But what do I need to copy from the old server in order to have in the new server the DB parameters? Like init.ora..etc?

Tks,
Joao
