    Unanswered: Migrate back to 32 bit instance after initially created as a 64 bit instance

    I have a db2 instance that was created as a 64 bit instance
    arccat
    $ db2level
    DB21085I Instance "arccat" uses "64" bits and DB2 code release "SQL08026" with
    level identifier "03070106".
    Informational tokens are "DB2 v8.1.1.120", "s060801", "U808888", and FixPak
    "13".
    Product is installed at "/usr/opt/db2_08_01".

    $ uname -a
    AIX archx02 3 5 00C5144D4C00
    $

    However the application i need to be able to interface to apparently only uses 32 bit instances.

    How can I downgrade the instance without having to drop it and recreate it?

    I don't think you can... What's wrong with dropping/re-creating it?

    "It does not work" is not a valid problem statement.

    The problem is the availability of the unix admin with the root password :-)

    What exactly is your problem (error message)? 32-bit applications should be able to directly talk to a 64-bit DB2 instance.
