Migrate OVSD 4.5 Database Platform

We are running OVSD 4.5 SP17, it is currently on HPUX 11i and Oracle 10g Is it possible to move this database over to Oracle 10g on Solaris 10 without many issues? We have more or less outgrown our current HPUX server.

Thanks,
Rob

Re: Migrate OVSD 4.5 Database Platform

Hi Rob,

It should be matter of installing the DB on the Solaris box (better if it is exactly the same Ora10g version), and then do a full export from HPUX's DB then import it into Solaris' DB (using default Oracle's export/import commands).

When doing this:
1. Stop SD application server
2. Once new DB is up and runing, change the Server Settings Editor connection parameters to connect the application server to new server.

I would recomend you to test this a couple of times before actually doing it.
