    It doesn´t work because SPARC is a big endian platform and x86/x86_64 is a little endian platform.

    you need to do a heterogeneous system copy using R3load.

    • is the option transport tables of database studio and this option is functionally for data transport from x86 to sparc plataform in two way ¿?

      Hmm... why don't you just test it out?

      Loadercli in general uses a dataformat that is platform-independent.

      Know what?

      Read the documentation MaxDB documentation - Loader and try out the transport with a little test table.

      There's even a Loader-Tutorial available...

      It's much easier than making up all kinds of questions of what might possibly work or not. 😊
