    Unanswered: DB2 7.1 upgrade..

    Hi All,
    I read in IBM developerworks that a DB2 7.2 with fixpack 7 upgrades it to 8/8.x version. Is that correct ? and
    I have 7.1 to which i applied fixpacks 3 and 5 and made it 7.2.3. Can i apply patch 7 and make it 8 ???

    You are confused:

    DB2 V7.1 = V7 base code or FP1-FP2
    DB2 V7.2 = V7 FP3-FP14 (or whatever the latest is)

    DB2 V8.1 = V8 base code or FP1-FP6
    DB2 V8.2 = V8 FP7-FP10

    If you are running DB2 on Windows, you can intall the latest fixpack of V8 (FP10) on top of V7. If you have Linux or UNIX, you must install 8.1 base code first, then upgrade to FP10.
