Migrating 18c from Oracle Linux 6 to 7

chrisseonMay 24 2020 — edited May 30 2020


Our 18c databases are currently on NetApp and HPE and we are planning to migrate the databases from the existing server running Oracle Linux 6 to a new server running Oracle Linux 7. Would it be possible to simply unmount the data file directories on Linux 6 and mount it to the new server running Linux 7? If that is not possible due to the differing OS versions, what would be the fastest way to migrate the data over to the new OS? Trying to avoid data dump.
