If we switch from a nt server to a solaris server (ASE on both). Can i then
create the db on the solaris server and then load the dump from NT version?
Or is there a compability issue between the OS´s regarding the format?

Sorry Mathias, but dump and load will not work across platforms (sometimes you
get lucky, but most of the time not). You will need to bcp out your data using
bcp -c and copy it in on the Solaris box. If you use bcp -n the data will be
in 'native' format and will not be compatible on the Solaris side.
