    Question Unanswered: DB2 8.2 (Fixpak 11) to DB2 9.1 (Fixpak 4) Migration

    Hi all,
    My business decided that we need to upgrade DB2. Currently we are on DB2 V8.2 Fixpak 11 on a SPARC hardware (SunFire 250 i think) running Solaris 8. We would like to move to DB2 9.1 (Fixpak 4) (a.k.a Viper 1) atleast.

    Currently the databases are on 64 bit instance and i would be creating a 64 bit instance on Viper too.

    My question is would taking backups of the existing databases and restoring on the Viper instance work?

    Are there any precautions i need to take? Could anyone tell me the road map for this migration?

    Thanks in Advance,

    if you are migrating on the same OS , there won't be any problem in restoring. After restore the db2 will migrate it to current FP level.
    Better try on a test system first.
