    Unanswered: Two db2 versions on same aix server


    I have 2 AIX servers - Server1,Server2.
    Server1 has DB2 V9.1 SP3 installed.
    Server2 has DB2 V8.2 installed.

    I have DB2 version 9.5 to install on either of the 2 servers.

    Can you please help me in answering whether I can install DB2 v9.5 on either of these 2 servers i.e. two different DB2 versions can be installed on same AIX server without disturbing each other ?

    Thanks for your help.

    Yes, Two different versions can be installed under a single AIX server. Infact not only two, one could also install three different versions 8, 9.1, 9.5 as three of them take different paths by default. Version 8 gets installed under /usr/opt/db2_08, version 9 under /opt/IBM/db2/V9.1 and version 9.5 under /opt/IBM/db2/V9.5. One installation shouldn't disturb the other installation. Because all the three versions gets installed in a different directory and are independent to one another, it is possible to create three different instances on one AIX server using three different versions. For example, db2inst1 -- using V8, db2inst2 using V9.1 and db2inst3 using V9.5
