I am in the process of migrating from oracle 220.127.116.11 to sql server. I am trying to use the SSMA (version 2, I tried 4 and 5 and they are not compatible with that version of oracle) utility, but am running into an issue with the license key. I can't get one. I go through the instructions on the popup, but it does nothing after it takes me to the website. Anyone have any ideas in how to go about getting the license file?
Oracle 8 has being unsupported for years now.
How big is the database? You want to hear a crazy but practical idea - depending on database size?
Create an Oracle 11g database, export data from Oracle 8i and import into 11g then you can use the most recent version of SSMA to do the migration.
