Unable to Open unix file in UNICODE system which created in NON-UNICODE system

We have two SAP systems both are ECC6.0 but System 1 is NON-Unicode and System2 is Unicode system.

There is a common unix directory/folder for both system.

Our requirement is to create one file on unix common folder and write the data to file from system1 .

In system2 open the same file for appending mode to write the data .

The file in system 1 created with below sentence.

OPEN DATASET g_unix_file FOR OUTPUT IN TEXT MODE ENCODING UTF-8.

Now I have to append the data from system 2 to same file.

I have tried to used below statement in system 2 to open the file but sy-subrc value comes as '8'.

1> OPEN DATASET g_unix_file FOR APPENDING IN TEXT MODE ENCODING UTF-8.

2>OPEN DATASET g_unix_file FOR APPENDING IN legacy TEXT MODE CODE PAGE

cdp IGNORING CONVERSION ERRORS .

3>OPEN DATASET g_unix_file FOR APPENDING IN TEXT MODE ENCODING Default.

4>OPEN DATASET g_unix_file FOR APPENDING IN TEXT MODE ENCODING NON-UNICODE.

Tried out all the possibilities as per F1 help given for open dataset , but still there is problem with opn file in appending as well output mode.However the file successfully open in Input mode(Read).

Please advice suggestion to resolve this issue.

Thanks.
