I'm converting ASA9 database to SA11.
This database have 4 dbspaces (main +3), after all process, extra dbspace files, have dbR extension.
Is it safe to just rename to .db ?

Yes, it is safe to rename the dbspaces to have any name you would like but when you do so you need to also execute an "ALTER DBSPACE RENAME ..." statement for each dbspace to tell the database server the new name of each file.

Thank you Mark. And can you tell me why file name ends with R?
The dbspaces get assigned an extension of "dbR" so as to not conflict with the original file name's extension (typically "dbs") - in case the new file is in the same directory as the original file - and to make it obvious which files are the new "rebuilt" dbspaces. This is explained in the docs: http://dcx.sybase.com/1201/en/dbadmin/dbunload.html
