I am trying to backup Databases in my company which installed on AIX oracle 10g. From the start they have not used the archives to backup DB. Instead they use expdp utility to export the data in to dump file and rename the file extension to .tmp and ftp to another machine to compress the file.
Is this possible without having to dump to all other slaves at the same time?
Basically I would create a blank database with the 'create database' function on the master and slave. Then I would setup the replication of the DB.
I would then do a dump on the master.. would all the inserts during the dump be replicated to the slave?
