Hi,

I hope that ASE could have the function to use the one dump database image
between different OS Platform. If I want to design a Warm Standby Solution
for a non-stop system. I have choose the same OS Platform to configure my
warm standby system. Because "Dump & Load" is the only way to materialize my
active database and standby database without stoping my online transactions
and operations.

To choose the same OS Platform as Active Database, the standby system's cost
is not effective. If the database backup format without the platform
limition,users could have the flexibility to finish their migration job
using "dump & load" between different OS Platform.

We don't have to stop our system during the platform migration.

Regards,

Pauln Wang

I agree 100% on that, even an exportation utility (for all objects, users,
grants, and data) who works realiably and fast would satisfy me. Sometimes I
even think on write it myself......

I assume this would be VERY difficult as because of the most significant bit
being left or right on different platforms. The "left-endian" vs.
"right-endian" problem.

Unix, BASIC, C, PASCAL, APL, ADA, and PROFANITY spoken here.

there may be something in the works from Sybase. a few months ago one of the engineering people asked about requirements etc for this in another group.

You may also want to look at SQL Backtrack.
