expdp with sys without knowing password

Simple but very handy way of taking exports without knowing database password.

expdp \’/ as sysdba\’ DIRECTORY=DATA_PUMP_DIR DUMPFILE=example.dmp LOGFILE=example.log SCHEMAS=MYSCHEMA

    or just:
    expdp all options without specify user/psw@db and when asked user type: / as sysdba
    same approach 😀

    In Windows operating system, above expdp \’/ as sysdba\’ syntax gives error:
    LRM-00108: invalid positional parameter value ‘sysdba”
    Alexandre’s solution works well…

    I usually use this syntax on all of my oracle servers (Windows/Linux):
    expdp “‘/ as sysdba'” (double cote, simple cote / AS SYSDBA simple cote, double cote)

    Be careful cause oracle clearly recommends not to export as sysdba :
    “Do not invoke Export as SYSDBA, except at the request of Oracle technical support. SYSDBA is used internally and has specialized functions; its behavior is not the same as for general users.”
