Question: How do I upload an oracle database schema file to s3 from linux command prompt

Answer: Download s3cmd

enter your access key and secret key when prompted

run your expdp command as oracle user

i.e. expdp sys/password schemas=rivpacs directory=DATA_PUMP_DIR dumpfile=rivpacs100309.dmp logfile=rivpacs100309.log

upload to your s3 bucket
