RE: copy file to a remote server

Darren,

 

yes you are right. My memory did not serve me well there. I just seemed
to remember that I faced an issue with file size with
DBMS_FILE_TRANSFER. But forgot that it was with filesytem block size
rather than db block size.

Not block size, but a multiple of 512 blocks.

 

Per, Oracle(r) Database PL/SQL Packages and Types Reference 11g Release
2 (11.2)
<http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E11882_01/appdev.112/e16760/d_ftran.

        Usage Notes

        <snip>

        Also, the copied file must meet the following requirements:

        *         The size of the copied file must be a multiple of 512
bytes.

        *         The size of the copied file must be less than or equal
to two terabytes.

Trouble with DBMS_FILE_TRANSFER is if your source file size is not a
multiple of DB block size, then oracle does not like the file and starts
complaining.
