  Is there any way to use ARCMAIN to dump data from a system running V2R5 and copy it to a system running V2R4? I don't think it can be done because I tested with ARCMAIN 07.00.00 (from TTU 7.0), and got this error on the copy:  

  *** Failure ARC1243:Backward restore/copy across major release not supported. system formats: source (5), target (4)  

  But I just wanted to double check whether anyone knows of anyway to get around this restriction (other than export/load).  

I did not try it but I think ARCMAIN might have a problem with such an operation as internal table storage structures have changed significantly between the releases. As a fast bulk utility ARCMAIN might be using them, and V2R5 dumps simply won't fit into the old R4 table definitions.
