Can you migrate your EM Cloud Control Repository to another OS platform? Cross-platform and cross-Endianness?
This question sounds so incredibly simple that you won’t even start thinking I guess. Same for ourselves. Use Data Pump. Or Transportable Tablespaces. Or Full Transportable Export/Import if your source is at least 188.8.131.52 or newer.
But sometimes in life things seem to be simple, but as soon as you unmask them you’ll find a full bunch of issues. It’s a fact that the repository of EM Cloud Control is quite a bit complicated. And uses plenty of databases technologies.
Actually all credits go to Roy here as he has worked with the EM group for the past 6 months on this topic.
You can migrate a EM Cloud Control Repository cross-platform but not cross-Endianness (e.g. HP-UX to OL, big to little Endianness). The latter is scheduled to be supported in EM 13.2.
- EM Cloud Control Repository cross-hardware and/or cross-platform migration:
- EM Cloud Control Repository cross-Endianness migration is not possible right now.
As EM Cloud Control Repository migrations is possible right now only within the same Endianness group you should decide carefully where you store your EM Cloud Control Repository.
