We have to do a bunch of upgrades to TSM , AIX and GRESHAM but keep DB2 EEE 7.2 at the same level (dependency on other software).
We currently have DB2 EEE with 3 nodes on two AIX 5.1 servers. The question is can we upgrade one of those hosts to 5.2 AIX and have DB2 EEE still be happy eventhough the 2 different hosts would be running on different OS levels.
I am throwing this out here first before approaching IBM but I think I know the answer already.
Definatly not possible.
Because when their is an incompatibility it acts odd and in some occassion
it behaves right.
The reason is simple all uses the C libraries and they are shared and on top of that thing IBM uses message passing interface.
