I'm quite confused and I need some clarification!
I do full export of database with Export Pump (for replication/duplication).
What I usually do is:
SQL>SHUTDOWN IMMEDIATE SQL>STARTUP RESTRICT
Then export, so I can have a consistent export (DMP-file).
Now can I export only with the parameter
What is the differences (if any), and when to use them?
I hope some one explain it to me in simple language!
What are the best practices in this regard?
