    Unanswered: db2 8.1 on AIX 6.1

    Hi.
    We are planning to upgrade AIX from V5.3 to V6.1 where we have two copies of DB2; one running on V9.1 and other 8.1
    1. For DB2 V8.1: From the below link I understand that AIX 6.1 has no support for DB2 V8.1. Can someone send me the link where this is clearly stated; a document from IBM will help
    2. For V9.1: Is there any changes that I need to do from database end after the AIX upgrade?

    DB2 V8 has no support at all anymore. The very first sentence in the online manual states that: DB2 Universal Database

    Hi Stolze,
    I am aware of that but clients don't wish to upgrade from V8.1 as of now, what in that case? Will the upgrade of OS version affect the database on V8.1/V8.2?

    Since IBM doesn't support DB2 V8 anymore, then it is ridiculous to ask whether they support DB2 V8 on AIX 6.1. As to whether it works on AIX 6.1 even though it is not supported, you will probably have to just try it, since you are not going to find any official documentation regarding that combination.
