    Unanswered: What is "Database release level" using "list db directory" command?

    Hi,
    using db2 v9.5 on Linux/Intel. When executing command "list db directory" there is info at "Database release level" with data c.00. What does this "c.00" mean?
    Regards

    each db2 release has a unique "release level". dbm cfg and db cfg contain the release level information and they should be the same. list db directory displays similar information.

    Hi,
    but is there any explanation what does "c.00" mean? I can't see any point that IBM will give as this info and not tell us what does this mean. I got this question from one of my customer and now I am interested in knowing it.
    Regards

    Ya its an incomplete info. Yet trying to deduce something from info centre:

    Database release level
    The release level of the database manager that can operate on the database.

    db2 list db directory
    Database release level = a.00
    -----
    db2 get dbm cfg
    Database Manager Configuration
    Node type = Client
    Database manager configuration release level = 0x0a00

    0x0a00 >>>> A00

    Hi,
    I am guesssing I could be some kind of hexa value. I have also tried this two command on DB2 v9.5 FIXPACK 2 and there is also c.00 value.

    It looks like this is some internal info not very usefull to DB-ADMIN.
    Regards

    Hi,
    also checked for db2 v8.2 fixpack 9 on Windows, there is a.00.
    Strange... It may be verzion 8 = a.00, version 9.1 = b.00 (not sure don't have any database with v9.1) and version 9.5 = c.00
    Regards
