Schema Migration Tools
Accesses utilities for migrating an OpenEdge database to an Oracle database, incrementally migrating a schema to Oracle, adjusting a schema image, and performing a bulk load of data
When you access an Oracle utility, you might see a dialog box for verifying your user ID and password. Choose OK, or enter a new user ID and password with the privileges required for creating and updating a schema image. See The schema holder for more information.
Note: The DataServer makes an additional connection to the schema holder when it creates, updates, or verifies a schema image. If you are connecting to multiple databases or schema images, make sure that you set the Number of Databases (-h) parameter to a value that accommodates the number of databases and schema images plus one.
