Export/import from solaris to linux endianess

Good Morning,

 

At work we are in the process of switching over from Solaris operating system to Linux o/s for our database.  I had been reading about this endianess where Solaris is identified as a "big endian" and the Linux is a "small endian" structure.  It has to do with the way files are loaded into memory.

 

My question is will this change in endian have any effect on the export from Solaris and import to Linux?

 

I can't seem to find any documentation on this subject.  My hunch says 'no' but I would like to get a second opinion.

 

Thanks in advance for help on this question.

 

Regards,
