Unanswered: To Use db2 v7 backup image on a db2 v9 sever
I'm going to "migrate" from db2 v7.2 to db2 v9.
But I wonder if it will be possible after, to reuse my old backup images (v7.2) on this new server (v9).
Indeed, I often need to use specific old backup images to run statistics for my customers.
I don't think of this problem before and I'm worried about it.
Please can you help me?
If you are using backup images, IBM only supports going one level backward when restoring an image. You can only backup on V7 and restore on V7 or V8. You can only backup on V8 and restore on V8 or V9. All cross version backup restore operations HAVE to be offline backups.
