Is it possible to load a database image dumped from an 11.9.2 sqlserver on
a solaris box into an 11.9.2 server residing on a linux box?

Thx

No. Cross platform loads are in general not supported, and definately have
problems
when going from a big-endian to a little-endian (or vice versa) OS, as is the
case here.
