Unicode-Conversion using Socket-Option possible ?
we plan to do a unicode-conversion.
System is DB2 on AIX.
In the guide from IBM regarding Copy-Optimization there is a info, that the socket-Option will bring a reduction of runtime.
But in Note 2311023 there is the hint, that it's not possible to use the socket-Option with unicode-conversion.
Does someone know, which info is correct ?

As per the SAP note, it says R3load has some limitations in transferring data over socket if there is a code page change. It may support only data migration having similar code page.
So for Unicode conversion it may not be a viable solution.
As you are on AIX best approach will be to have NFS share created will be still serve the purpose of parallel export-import and help in reducing downtime.
