A quick sharing….

Last few days bask we were have to migrate a schema from 10g R2 on Solaris 10 64 bit to 11g R2  on windows 32 bit using traditional exp/imp. Exp was successful (as usual), but while importing we were facing below error.

Connected to: Oracle Database 11g Express Edition Release – Production

Export file created by EXPORT:V10.02.01 via conventional path

Warning: the objects were exported by SYSTEM, not by you

import done in WE8MSWIN1252 character set and AL16UTF16 NCHAR character set
import server uses WE8ISO8859P1 character set (possible charset conversion)
export client uses US7ASCII character set (possible charset conversion)
. importing USER1’s objects into USER2

ORA-01435: user does not exist
Import terminated successfully with warnings.

we were using below syntax…..

imp system/oracle@DB_NAME file=’c:\dumpfile.dmp’ log=c:\logfile.log grants=n fromuser=<Schema_from>touser=<Schema_to>;

We were facing this issue from last 3 days, finally found the cause of the problem(A silly mistake):

The above command is working as a cmd command other than sql/plsql command so we should not use “;” at the end of the syntax.


imp system/oracle@***** file=’c:\dumpfile.dmp’ log=c:\logfile.log grants=n fromuser=<Schema_from> touser=<Schema_to>

this will sort out the error…..

Hope this helps..

Thanks & Regards
