Question: How do I use the
transportable data pump feature?
Answer: (by Earl
Schaffer) Full transportable operations includes full
transportable support for multitenant container databases (CDBs):
The 12c Oracle Data Pump full
transportable feature lets you move an entire database from
one Oracle Database to another. You can use the
transportable feature to move a non-CDB database into a pluggable database (PDB).
also use this full transportable feature to move a PDB
PDB. You might want to do this if you are moving across
multiple database versions or onto another OS
transportable support for non-container databases (CDBs)
The new Oracle Data Pump full transportable feature
lets you easily move an entire database from one Oracle Database
instance to another.
You can use this functionality
to move a non-CDB into another non-CDB. You can then transport a
non-CDB into a CDB at a later date. You can also use the
full transportable feature to move a PDB into a non-CDB.
Full transportable operations can reduce the export
time and especially, the import time, because table data
does not need to be unloaded and reloaded and index
structures in user tablespaces do not need to be re-created.
Full transportable is more automated than
transportable tablespaces because it moves the metadata and
user data that resides in non-transportable tablespaces than
would previously have been moved in multiple operations.
This makes the full transportable feature useful for
efficiently moving a database to a new computer system or
upgrading to a new release of Oracle Database.
