Convert oracle file system from HFS to JFS???

Hi All,

We have sap 3.0f application with oracle 7.3.4 in both primary and standby servers. The file system structure which had been created on the source system was HFS using the command:
newfs â L â I 20000 â F hfs â b 8192 â f 8192 â m 1 /dev/vgsap/rsapdata1
While the file system on the target system is JFS using the command:
newfs â F vxfs â b 8192 /dev/vgsap/rsapdata1

My question: Is it possible to back up those oracle files from the source system which has HFS files system and restore it on the standby system which has the same logical volume and mounted directory but with JFS file system? If Yes what will be the benefit of converting the file to JFS over HFS AND will oracle runs without any p

hi,

Oracle should run without any problem. you can backup your oracle database from the HFS filesystem and restore to the JFS filesystem.

JFS is said to be far better than HFS...lot of differences are there, the most advatageous being the online JFS product which is supported on vxfs...

hi,

sure you can backup your Oracle datafiles on a HFS filesystem and restore them to a VXFS filesystem. This is completly transparant to Oracle.

Oracle 7.3.4 is out of support since ages.

All unix flavours are exactly the same . . . . . . . . . . for end users anyway.
