Sql-Developer does create data load scripts which includes extracting from MS SQL. Also it loads into Oracle. It uses two methods
All the constraints will be disabled before the load and enabled after the load. If you used offline migration methods please check the data move folder for batch file and shell scripts.
It goes few level down to get to the actual script.
Let me know if you can find any issues loading the data. My email can be found in my profile.
Thanks for the reply. I encounter yet again the issue with username/password when the oracle_ctl.bat batch file tried to execute the instructions and pre- and post-SQL scripts. I am thinking I have to go in and modify the .bat scripts myself...
I have seemingly successfully created the Northwind database in Oracle and the next step is to migrate the data for which SQLDeveloper has set up
the batch file and a shell script in the directory mssqlservermigration\Data.
The file names are oracle_ctl.bat, oracle_ctl.sh, pre_load.sql and post_load.sql
But when I ran oracle_ctl.bat, it throws following error messages ( and because of it, many more error messages followed after that, locking some
C:> mssqlservermigration\Data> oracle_ctl.bat
C:> mssqlservermigration\Data> sqlplus dbo_Northwind/dbo_Northwind@orcl0<pre_load.sql
SQL*Plus: Release 188.8.131.52.0 Productio on Thu Jul 3 14:20:29 2014

ORA-01017: invalid username/password; logon denied
Do we have to modify the .BAT created by SQL Developer ourselves?
Also this waring: account locked! I logged onto SQLplus and confirm that no accounts have been locked, all free.
OK, it's this line in the batch file:
sqlplus dbo_Northwind/dbo_Northwind@orcl < pre_load.sql
Do the same thing like last time, log onto SQLPlus and unlock account, set indentity to dbo_Northwind and the batch file executes without complains.
Data are loaded, now we must do QA tests.
I DO NOT feel in control of the whole process, I'll do this again with another SQLServer database...
Looks like you already figured it out the loading process. Looks like you ran the pre_load.sql which disables the constraints.
oracle_ctl [user] [password@dbname] <= This is the top level of the script calls
If you go inside you can find individual data load ctl and external tables scripts. You can try that way to load single load have control rather than kicking the top level of the script and wait till it finishes the whole flow. Let me know if this helps.
