    check if supported
    Migration restrictions for DB2 servers

    Depending on the actual platforms you may be able to use backup/restore: Backup and restore operations between different operating systems and hardware platforms

    "It does not work" is not a valid problem statement.

    "O.S. this" to "O.S. that" is not really an issue. The CPU architecture is more relevant (it is all about endians). Solaris and linux can run on all kind of hardware. It is either
    1) make an offline not compressed backup and try to restore this image on the new architecture. If that fails (no compatible CPU architecture)
    2) the utility "db2move" is your friend
