    As long as it is from the same OS, the V8.1 manual for RESTORE says that it can read backup images from the two previous versions.

    Windows (any flavor) to windows (any flavor) should work.

    Coincidentally I did exactly that this morning - Win 2000 DB2 v7.2 backup to create db on Win XP DB2 v8.1.

    All works fine apart from I get some strange error about when trying to access Task_Center - DBA1177N A database connection to the Tools Catalog Database "" cannot be made. SQLCODE "1013" - which is why I am here!

    Regardless, all the data is in place and as it should be.
