Oracle 9i Database to a SQL 2008 or higher
Posted on 2013-06-25
I have an old Oracle 9i database that has the data for a legacy ERP system (Pointman/Infor).
The system is on a Windows 2000 server Virtual machine, (Was originally a NT 4.0 Server) and the system was accessed via terminal server, with Hummingbird BI software on the old Terminal Server (Now retired). It is now accessed via Remote Desktop, direct to that server and without the BI Software to pull reports.
My plans are to copy the database to an SQL server (2008 or 2012) machine and use SQL Reporting Services to pull my data reports for my Customer Service people (Who still want and "need" to pull 6 to 12 year old data).
I want to keep the data and tables intact, but I do not really care about keeping the stored procedures (But it would be a plus).
Can SSMA (SQL Server Migration Assistant) for Oracle v5.2 do this for a 9i database?
The plan is to put the database on a clean Virtual Machine, with no other databases on it.
