    Unanswered: db2 v8 fp4 and db2 v8 fp5

    AIX 5.2

    Hi,

    I have db2 v8 fp5 installed in the server. Now client wants to have v8 fp4 installed as well along with v8 fp5. I have never done this multi-fixpak installation...any idea and documentation?

    Thanks

    From V8 multiple fixpacks can co exist.
    When you are installing the code Use a different directory.
    This feature is avilable only for Unix based systems

    If you have fp5 installed, I don't think you can go the the alternate fixpack 4 ...

    Fixpak 4a readme says:
    * You must have a DB2 product Version 8 installed at a lower VRMF level
    than DB2 Version 8.1.4 before installation.

    Yes, you are right. I confirmed with IBM and it's not possible in my situation.

    Thanks guys!!!
