2109442 - What is 'iqunload' utility and How to use -- SAP IQ


"iqunload" is a command line utility, which depending on the version of the database it is run against performs one of two tasks.

  • When run against an SAP IQ 12.7 database, it migrates the database, re-creating the legacy catalog on the new database catalog in the current installation.
    See the SAP IQ Installation and Update Guide documentation for your platform for details on migrating an SAP IQ 12.7 database.
  • When run against an SAP IQ 15.4 or later database, it unloads the database schema and optionally its data into a SQL script file. You can then load the schema file into another SAP IQ database of the same version.
    See the SAP IQ Administration: Database documentation for details on exporting schema.
