I am in the process of planning to port a running DB2 instance on an IBM Mainframe to Oracle 9i running on Unix. Has anyone done does this before ? If yes, what should I be looking out for ? Any particular advice ? Thanks and Regards, Debu

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Sorry this is a late response but the major differences will be in the datatypes used and some of the objects such as sequences. This I learnt from going between Informix and oracle.

    Oracle describes its tools for doing this conversion at http://www.oracle.com/technology//tech/migration/toolkits/index.html You may need to register, but this site is free. I have never done this particular migration myself.
