We have a 8TB database, RDBMS 11,1. on Solaris 10, non ASM. Need to copy the 1290 files to remote node of AIX ASM to prepare for a upgrading to 188.8.131.52.
We tried to use asmcmd cp to copy the files directly from non ASM too ASM remotely, but did not work.
$ asmcmd cp -ifr email@example.com:/oradata/prdsdev/datafiles/dev_4.dbf +PRDSU_DATA/PRDSU/TEMPFILE/dev_4.dbf

ORA-01031: insufficient privileges (DBD ERROR: OCISessionBegin)
We were using the user fttr. Do we need to login as SYSASM, do we need to go through OS auth, any other privilege required. What instance do we need to login, regular database that is using the data files, or ASM instance is goin g to manage the files.
1. my previous question is if asmcmd cp can accomplish the task.
2. RMAN COPY, as I know, will either copy non asm files to ASM files locally, or copy files asm to asm across nodes. which means that we have to do two steps, rather copy the non asm files to a node of asm directly.
