Symptoms

Trying to export two or more containers in the form of a .DAT file.
Quickly, the export stops in giving the following log file and the .DAT file is 0 KB:

# COMMAND FILE = C:\Documents and Settings\Username\My Documents\Exports\APPLICATION.dat
# ERROR FILE = C:\Documents and Settings\Username\My Documents\Exports\APPLICATION.err
# REDO FILE = N/A
# APPLICATION SYSTEM = N/A
# SEQUENCE = 2973
# MODE = Unload

The same export in binary mode (.dmp) produces a correct export file with content.
Yet, required to use .dat files in this environment.
