OSDB signal files Mig; import monitor hangs early on SAPNTAB.STR


Has anyone out there worked with signal file controlled OSDB migrations?

We’re having an issue on the target that the import_monitor (aka migmon) hangs (not errors in the log) after these lines:

INFO: 2013-03-07 11:55:19

Version table 'SVERS' is found in STR file '/oracle/XXX/O2O/EXPORT/DATA/SAPNTAB.STR' from package 'SAPNTAB'.

INFO: 2013-03-07 11:55:19

Data conversion tables 'DDNTF,DDNTF_CONV_UC,DDNTT,DDNTT_CONV_UC' are found in STR file '/oracle/XXX/O2O/EXPORT/DATA/SAPNTAB.STR' from package 'SAPNTAB'.


  • the export is running and files followed by signal files are being transferred
  • All STR files are pre-copied over.
  • If I comment out all but 2 or 3 STR files (in DATA) then the import starts running without issue for these files, but with all STR files there (as I would expect for full migration) it finds SAPNTAB.STR and before anything really kicks off the monitor hangs at this point

Any ideas?
