I was browsing the net to find a solution, but I had no luck. :(
How can I install Oracle's
exp binaries to my CentOS box without installing an Oracle Server? I'm accessing an existing Oracle database on another machine, so I only need a client here.
I already installed
sqlplus and its dependencies (
oracle-instantclient11.2-odbc-126.96.36.199.0-1.x86_64.rpm), but that didn't provide those tools.
Do I really need to fully install Oracle?
My aim is to suck a database dump from the Oracle to my CentOS box. If there is another way to do this without using
exp I wouldn't feel bad about NOT using it, but it seems to me there is no alternative.
