    No, dumps cannot be exchanged on other platforms than they are dumped on.

    Win2k to Winxp may be possible, but Win2k to Sun won't work.
    I'm not crazy, I'm an aeroplane!

    Sybase is planning limited cross-platform dump and load support starting ASE 12.5.3.

    What I've heard, the full spectrum in also in consideration for ASE 15.0.x

    tks but

    I tried that between AIX and Solaris and it worked
    you have just to create Procs and triggers and all is ok
    may be it works between SUN and NT ?

    SUN(sparc) and NT will not work.

    SUN(sparc) is a BIG Endian platform whereas all Windows are Little Endian's.

    It will work on SUN x86 to Windows and vice-versa. Also it will work with a reasonbale degree of success between SUN(sparc) <--> HP-UX(RISC) <-->AIX. The success depends on your charset and sort order.

    I know why

    this afternoon, I have seen somebody from Sybase.
    The problem between SUN and NT is the representation of integer in the registers of the processor. Intel, AMD have choosen one way and Sun, Motorola another. If you want to use a dump from SUN ( ultrasparc ) to NT ( P- IV ) , you have to manipulate the dump before the load : too complex .
    But you can dump from linux on x86 to NT without problems.
    bye

    Cool Cross Platform dump/load Across Same-Processor Architecture is now Supported

    Cross platform dump/load is (partially) supported in ASE 12.5.2. The following Technote has the details:

    Hope this helps.
