RMAN CONVERT DATABASE cross PlatformApplies to:
Oracle Server - Enterprise Edition - Version: to in this document applies to any platform.
Walk through RMAN CONVERT DATABASE feature in 10g Release 2 to accomplish cross platform databasemigration Note the following restrictions exist with Cross-Platform Transportable Database:1) The principal restriction on cross-platform transportable database is that the source and destination platformmust share the same endian format.2) Redo log files and control files from the source database are not transported. New control files and redo logfiles are created for the new database during the transport process, and an OPEN RESETLOGS is performed oncethe new database is created. Similarly, tempfiles belonging to locally managed temporary tablespaces are nottransported. The temporary tablespace will be re-created on the target platform when the transport script is run.3) BFILEs, External tables and directories, Password files are not transported.
1) Check that the source and destination platform belong to same ENDIAN format in the viewV$TRANSPORTABLE_PLATFORM. We will try to transport a database from Windows (32-bit) to Linux (32- bit). As seen below both belong to Little endian format:
SQL> select PLATFORM_NAME, ENDIAN_FORMAT from V$TRANSPORTABLE_PLATFORM;PLATFORM_NAME ENDIAN_FORMAT---------------------------------------- --------------Solaris[tm] OE (32-bit) BigSolaris[tm] OE (64-bit) BigMicrosoft Windows IA (32-bit) LittleLinux IA (32-bit) LittleAIX-Based Systems (64-bit) BigHP-UX (64-bit) BigHP Tru64 UNIX LittleHP-UX IA (64-bit) BigLinux IA (64-bit) LittleHP Open VMS LittleMicrosoft Windows IA (64-bit) LittleIBM zSeries Based Linux BigLinux 64-bit for AMD LittleApple Mac OS BigMicrosoft Windows 64-bit for AMD LittleSolaris Operating System (x86) LittleIBM Power Based Linux Big17 rows selected.
If the two platforms are not on the same endian format, you will need to use TRANSPORTABLE TABLESPACEinstead of CONVERT DATABASEsee Note 243304.110g : Transportable Tablespaces Across Different Platforms2) Use DBMS_TDB.CHECK_DB to check whether the database can be transported to a desired destination platform, and whether the current state of the database (such as incorrect compatibility settings, in-doubt or activetransactions) permits transport. Make sure your database is open in READ ONLY mode before you callDBMS_TDB.CHECK_DB. Since we need to transport to Linux we will call the procedure with followingarguments:
SQL> set serveroutput onSQL> declare2 db_ready boolean;3 begin4 db_ready := dbms_tdb.check_db('Linux IA (32-bit)');5 end;6 /PL/SQL procedure successfully completed.
If you call DBMS_TDB.CHECK_DB and no messages are displayed indicating conditions preventing transportBEFORE the "PL/SQL procedure successfully completed message", then your database is ready for transport.3) Use DBMS_TDB.CHECK_EXTERNAL to identify any external tables, directories or BFILEs. RMAN cannotautomate the transport of such files as mentioned above.
SQL> set serveroutput onSQL> declare2 external boolean;3 begin4 external := dbms_tdb.check_external;5 end;6 /The following directories exist in the database:SYS.DATA_PUMP_DIRPL/SQL procedure successfully completed.
If there are no external objects, then this procedure completes with no output. If there are external objects,however, the output will be somewhat similar to above.4) When the database is ready for transport, the RMAN CONVERT DATABASE command is run (when thesource database is READ ONLY), specifying a destination platform and how to name the output files. RMAN produces the following files needed to move the database to the destination system:a) A complete copy of the datafiles of the database, ready to be transported b) A PFILE for use with the new database on the destination platform, containing settings used in thePFILE/SPFILE from the source database.c) A transport script, which contains SQL statements used to create the new database on the destination platform

Check the output related to the transport script and the parameter file for the new database at the end above. WhenCONVERT DATABASE completes, the source database may be opened read-write again.5) Now copy the above files to the destination host. i.e. the converted datafiles, transport.sql script and the pfilegenerated.6) The PFILE generated by RMAN will have following sections:a) Parameters that need to be changed for the destination host environment b) Other parameters which are same as the source database parametersEdit the PFILE moved on the destination host to change the environment specific parameters.7) Now edit the TRANSPORT sql script to reflect the new path for datafiles in the CREATE CONTROLFILEsection of the script. Also change all references to the INIT.ORA in the script to the new path and name of theINIT.ORA modified above.8) Once the PFILE and TRANSPORT sql scripts are suitably modified invoke SQLPLUS on the destination hostafter setting the Oracle environment parameters and then run TRANSPORT.sql as:
