I have a db dump which containts db dump for three schemas for e.g. alpha bravo charlie in one file, exported through EXPDP.

now when i am trying to import these through following command:

IMPDP alpha/alpha FULL=Y DUMPFILE=alpha06022014.dmp LOGFILE=alpha.log;

after couple of lines i get this error which is probably because i am sypplying only credentials of one schema in the command? If yes than how can i import three schemas?:


ORA-31684: Object type VIEW:"alpha"."table1" already exists
ORA-31684: Object type VIEW:"alpha"."object" already e
ORA-39126: Worker unexpected fatal error in KUPW$WORKER.PUT_DDL [VIEW:"bravo"."

To import data into a different schema you need to grant IMP_FULL_DATABASE role to the user. Oracle MOS Doc ID 351598.1.

Or you can use SYS user:

impdp \'/ as sysdba\' FULL=Y DUMPFILE=alpha06022014.dmp LOGFILE=alpha.log
