I have to transfer the informix(database) files from AIX to RHEL.
AIX filesystem is JFS and RHEL filesystem is ext3. Want i want to know is
1.wheather if i copy the files from AIX to RHEL by using SCP or rsh or rsync it will be copied.
2.OR if use NFS to mount the file from AIX to RHEL i will be able to copy the files.
3. OR is there any patch available to create JFS file system in RHEL.

Thanks in Advance

The filesystem and the file itself are 2 very different things. Using rsync or scp will work wonderfully. You can copy from any type of filesystem to any other. The copy program won't even care what the remote and local filesystems are. You're basically comparing how things are written to the disk with what is written to the disk. They have no impact on one another.

That being said, I've never used informix, so if there is something on there that requires a certain filesystem underneath, then you would have to put a jfs filesystem underneath. I don't expect that would be the case however. Odds are very good it will just work.
