    Question Unanswered: Connect from ver 8 to ver 7

    AIX 5.2 DB2 8.1.5

    Hi guys - 2 questions:

    1. Does any of the senior members remember if recursive
    sql was supported for version 7?

    2. Is it possible to register a version 7 remote databae (on AIX)
    in a Version 8.1.5 Control Center on Windows

    Hope you guys can help.

    You can register a remote version 7 database using version 8 Control Center. However some functions will not work properly. But you do need one of the later version 7 fixpaks installed as a minimum requirement on the server to do this.

    It wasn't that long ago :-) Some people still run it... Yes, recursive SQL is supported in v7.

    Hi Tank,

    I still use v7.2 on windows because of too bugy v8.1. I have been bodering the IBM since realise of fixpack. And as as see the fixpack 6 solves all my problems with db2.

    And the answer: recusive SQL is supported in v7. I think it was supported already in v6 mybe even in v5. Recusive SQL is not new staff.

    Thanks,
    Grofaty
