Best Practices for Migrating Sybase ASE 15.5 from SUN Solaris to RH6


I am currently running: "Adaptive Server Enterprise/15.5/EBF 18657 SMP ESD#4/P/Sun_svr4/OS 5.8/asear155/2545/64-bit/FBO/Thu Jun 16 10:29:40 2011" with following databases sizes:

267,000.0 MB

122,000.0 MB

78,500.0 MB

and, of course, many more much smaller in size. I am looking for the best practices, detail steps (and gotchas) of moving these databases from Sybase ASE 15.5 on SUN Solaris to ASE 15.7 on Linux (RH6 64-bit). I used the cross-platform dump-n-load many years ago to migrate from the same databases from Windows to SUN, and now need to move to company's enterprise platform. I will be working on testing the process and procedures in test environment starting next week.

By-the-way, what EBF/ESD/SP level should I install?

Thanks for insight and direction.
