I have a 11.1 oracle server and I need to export a dump file for a client who has a 10.1 server.

While reading the documentation, I figured out I needed the 10.1 Export Utility. I searched the Oracle site and I couln't find it.

How can I get this utility? Thanks


To do this, you'll be wanting to use the 11.1 Data Pump (expdp/impdp) rather than exp/imp. With Data Pump you export using the higher version export utility with the VERSION= parameter.

For example:

expdp scott/tiger version=10.1 directory=DUMPDIR dumpfile=DUMPFILE.dmp logfile=DUMP.log

Don't forget to create the directory (using CREATE DIRECTORY DUMPDIR AS '/path/to/dir';) first.

  • And my client can import it with his imp.exe utility like a regular dump file? – Goldorak84 Oct 3 '12 at 13:24

    No, import with impdp - 10.1 was the first version that came with this utility. – Philᵀᴹ Oct 3 '12 at 13:25
  • If I have a client with 9.2? Am I in trouble? – Goldorak84 Oct 3 '12 at 13:29

    9.2 is no longer supported. – Philᵀᴹ Oct 3 '12 at 13:32
