DB2 V8 Database copy from windows to AIX


I want to setup a clone of my DB2 v8 database on windows 2000 on a AIX 5.3 server via TSM.

Has someone already done this kind of backup / restore ?

Thanks in advance

Hi Yves,

it is not possible to usebackup/restore to clone databases between Windows and AIX, because of the different endiness.

If you want to clone your db from Windows to AIX, you have to perform a so called heterogeneous system copy, which is described in a SAP guide.

Regards, Jens
