    Unanswered: DB2 V7.2 to V8.1 Upgrade

    Windows 2000. DB2 V7.2

    What is the best way to upgrade DB2 version 7.2 on Windows 2000 to DB2 version 8.1 ?. I was thinking of 2 options but I don't know which one will be less painful.

    I don't even know these options are possible.


    1- Backup all the databases.
    2- Uninstall DB2 V7.2 completely.
    3- Install DB2 V8.1 with the latest FP (14)
    4- Restore all the databses.


    1- Backup all the databases.
    2- Upgrade V7.2 to V8.1 with the latest FP(14)
    3- If run into issues, uninstall/reinstall V7.2 and restore databases.

    Any pointers ? Thanks.

    (1) Optional but recommended: backup all databases
    (2) Install V8
    (3) Migrate instance and all databases
