unsorted unload for cluster tables for non-unicode migrations


This is a request to help clarify a statement in SAP note 954268.

the note makes the following statements regarding codepage conversions:

begin quote****

If you convert the codepage, you must always unload cluster tables as sorted. The codepage is converted for the following actions:

non-Unicode --> Unicode

MDMP --> Unicode

Unicode (big endian) --> Unicode (little endian)

Unicode (little endian) --> Unicode (big endian)


End quote *******

I am doing a OS/DB migration from R/3 4.7x200 HPUX/ORA9.2.0.8 to WIN2003/MSSQL2005 without a codepage conversoin. I am using the latest 6.40 R3ldctl and R3load and distribution monitor.

IMO, the above quote implies you can do an unsorted unload if you are not doing a codepage conversion.

1.) Is this a correct assumption?

2.) If so, how do I ensure the cluster tables are unloaded unsorted? I have set the parameter 'unsortedExport=all' in the distribution_monitor_cmd.propertes. (The source hardware is very old, I want the target target hardware to do the majority of the work.)

Thanks for any feedback.
