I need create a copy of an Oracle 12.2 instance (Oracle Restart) running on an Linux VM. The new instance needs a charset conversion from WE8ISO8859P1 to UTF8
I started by creating a clone of the VM that is now up and running.
I was thinking about following these steps:
I have some doubts about the impdp FULL=YES... will this work or will it overwite some configuration on SYS or other Oracle maintained schemas with some values that still refers to WE8ISO8859P1 charset?
Will this work or should I exclude all the Oracle maintained schemas from the impdp?
On export the documentation states:
A full export does not, by default, export system schemas that contain Oracle-managed data and metadata. Examples of system schemas that are not exported by default include SYS, ORDSYS, and MDSYS.
If you want to be absolutely sure I would switch to a schema-mode import instead. You can still use the full export. That way you specify what schemas you want to import.
