We are going to migrate an HP-UX-based Oracle Application to Linux. We are going to install new binaries, of course, but we need to migrate the data. So, I have some questions:
1. Some of the Oracle SIDs use mounted filesystems to hold thier data. The filesystems are LVM LVs in VGs. Can I "split" the BCV and mount the HP-UX VGs, LVs, filesystems on Linux? Will Linux read them?
2. Some of the Oracle SIDs use ASM volumes. Can I split the ASM BCVs, "activate" them on Linux and Linux will read them?
Our DBAs have already told me that they will need to convert the data with RMAN. HP-UX is a "big endian" system and Linux is a "little endian" system (or vice-versa). I'm not asking about that. I'm only asking if Linux can"read" the HP-UX volume BCVs...
