dump database files are OS specific. It's highly
improbable for a Sun Solaris dump to be accepted
by ASE on Intel Linux.
Think that a dump database file contains the
native pages of the database. Many fields are
formatted in a OS-dependent way, so they
aren't compatible across different OS or
hardware architectures. For instance, endianess
(whether integers are stored right-to-left or
left-to-right) is different between Intel and
most RISC processors. This bans any dump
database compatibity between Intel Linux and
Solaris on native RISC processors.
