Hello list,

I have a uphill taks of migrating our datawarehouse Oracle 9i database,
3TB size, from HP Superdom to AIX, Oracle 10g.
Since the migration is across platofrms, exp/imp is the obvious option. But,
3TB size databse, exp/imp may take just too much time.

I have thought the following:

Upgrading 9i database on AIX to 10g (in place upgrade)
Then, using the method of database cross platform conversion from HP to AIX.

The problem with this method is that the temporary space required to hold
the converted data files, it willd be difficult to have 3tb temporary sapce.

Do you see any another solution for this task?
