Change RAS Byte Order

If RAS are imported to a hardware platform with dissimilar byte layout, the RAS byte order cannot be determined and must be changed. Failing to change the byte layout can lead to incorrect interpretation of the data.

To ensure the NumRows data is correctly interpreted, specify the byte order of the source and target machines before initiating the import operation.

To change RAS byte order

Note: Use this procedure only when importing to a hardware platform with dissimilar byte layout.

1 From the Import window, click next to RAS Tags in the left pane to expand the view.

2 Right‑click a RAS node and select RAS Byte Order.

The RAS Byte Order dialog box appears.

Note: If the byte order for one table changes, it changes for all of the tables.

3 In the Source Machine Byte Order box, select one of the following:

  • Little-Endian
  • Big-Endian
  • 4 In the Target Machine Byte Order box, select one of the following:

  • Little-Endian
  • Big-Endian
  • 5 Click OK.

    6 Make sure the check box located next to the RAS tag is selected so it is included in the import.

    7 [Optional] Click to start the import operation.

    See “Import to a Test System” on page 95.
