export import from Solaris to Linux

Oracle Database Tips by Donald BurlesonNovember 5, 2015

Question:  How do I export a table from Solaris and import it directly into Linux using the network_link command?  I want to use network_link to transfer the ex[port file directly to Linux and import it there.  Also, how to I create the database link for a cross platform expdp impdp?

Answer:  The network_link option is great because you no longer need to have cumbersome dmp files on the server, and with network_link, the data can be transferred directly across the network, bypassing any need for a dump file.  Also see my notes on using export over a network_link.
