We need to convert a 5TB database from Solaris to AIX. We are planning to use the RMAN
CONVERT DATABASE command to do this (as they are both BIG_ENDIAN). All MetaLink examples show RMAN to disk, but this database is 5TB, and would like to use RMAN to sbt_tape (CommVault).

Can we possibly use RMAN to sbt_tape to perform this CONVERT DATABASE? Or do you recommend using RMAN to disk?
