    Unanswered: Restore Database Issue - Urgent

    I am trying to restore a AIX database onto WIndows XP workstation. I have not been successful yet. I am getting all kinds of errors. Is this even possible (AIX backup to Windows XP restore) ?.

    I am getting "Creditentials are invalid error" . What am I doing wrong ?

    T.I.A.

    cross platform redirect restore is not allowed, you need to use db2move+db2look

    You can restore within the following platforms:

    - UNIX to UNIX (any flavor)
    - Linux to Linux
    - Windows to Windows

    But not between the above platforms. Has partly to do with big endian vs little endian.

    Little Endian" means that the low-order byte of the number is stored in memory at the lowest address, and the high-order byte at the highest address. (The little end comes first.)

    "Big Endian" means that the high-order byte of the number is stored in memory at the lowest address, and the low-order byte at the highest address. (The big end comes first.)
