ORACLE 8 - Export - Import

Hi Experts,

I want to do an export - import of my Oracle DB. As I understand this could reduce my DB size.

What method do you suggest?

Can I use SAPINST 7.00 for the export -import? my SAP is 4.5B

It´s the same SAP System ID and the same server I just want to reduce my DB size.

Regards

    This process is called "reorganization" and is only necessary if lots of data was deleted. Just exporting and importing doesn't do any change.

    SAPINST doesn't know about 4.5B, this is LONG gone.

    Oracle 8 and 4.5B are long out of maintenance, nowadays available tools don't support such old ancient versions. You would need to do that using sapdba or write your own scripts.
