I used this command to export data:

expdp gsw/password DIRECTORY=gsw DUMPFILE=gsw.dmp logfile=gsw.log SCHEMAS=GSW

Now importing this to other server as:

[root@linux gsw]# impdp gsw/password remap_tablespace=SYSTEM:GSW remap_tablespace=USERS:GSW dumpfile=GSW-31-08-2018.dmp directory=gsw

I googled but not able to fix it. Please advise

Thanks in anticipation

The main issue is Linux-x86_64 Error: 13: Permission denied

cd /u01/app/oracle/admin/XE/dpdump/
 chmod 777 -R gsw

Then login as oracle user and run the same command again
