1) What version are you running? I think K.Gopal's reply means 10gR2
might have the feature to store new datafiles types in ASM. Or, maybe
he means an minor version upgrade of 10gR1, but I don't know for sure.

2) I have not tried the 'directory' option on the expdp command line.
I have only exported using expdb to the filesystem from ASM. The
command line option I had trouble with was 'exclude', as in exclude
schema, for impdp. It would be very funny if the version K.Gopal means
would allow us to expdp files into ASM but not impdp files out of ASM.

Rather than use the command line, I wrote impdp API code and found bad
errors until I upgraded to That's why I'm asking what

3) Have you tried the expdp API instead of command line? I don't
expect it to work different with respect to storing export files in
ASM (at least through but I'm curious if you get the same

To help me get started with impdp API I generated my initial scripts
with EM-DBConsole. The scripts generated by EM-DBConsole for impdp
exclude were broken (EM does not have exclude schema option, but
something close). The API code was easy to fix (excluded schema's were
included, so I switched the code to 'not in' and it worked with Some EM programmer thought that naming a function 'exclude'
but then doing 'schema in (list...)' would exclude rather than 'schema
not in (list...)'. Doh.

Fortunately, you get to review the code EM generates and cut and paste
into a script to fix on your own. :-)

Good luck
