We are getting following warning while upgrading MDM 2.1 database:

Setting Current Schema to CISADM

Possible characterset conversion can cause data corruption, Do you want to continue? (Y/N)

Could you please let us know what is the impact of changing the character set from AL32UTF8 to WE8MSWIN1252 or other characterset converstions?
