Want to check here, any assistance is highly appreciated.

We have 8TB database to be upgraded from 10.2.0.5 Solaris to 11.2.0.2 AIX. Both platform are big endian. We are dd the files from solaris to aix using dd and then invoke RMAN convert to convert solaris files and aix files, but the convert took too long and out of our maintenance window. I was reading a note void Datafile Conversion during Transportable Database [Document 732053.1] . It said that only UNDO tablespace files need to be converted. Can anybody confirm it and any restraction to apply?

Thanks
