Migrate an Oracle database to a new server using DBUtil


QAID # 11752 Published 

Question / Problem:

Can DBUtil be used to migrate an existing Oracle database to a new server?

Answer / Solution:

Yes. Enter the new instance, database name and password, then click Apply. DBUtil will migrate to the new instance.

Additional Information:

  • This process will delete the original Oracle database. Make a backup first.
  • It is required to process all existing Batches out of the system.
  • Export all Batch Classes and confirm that you have backups of any customizations, Release Scripts, etc.
  • Temporarily disable the Kofax Capture Network Service. Please see QAID 2262. This will prevent Remote Sites from updating the database.
  • Verify that all users are logged out of Kofax Capture and will remain logged out until the process is complete.
  • Update the ORACLE_HOME setting in ODAC to point to the new Oracle server.
