    Unanswered: DB2 ESE Upgrade from 8.2 to 9.7

    Hello everyone,

    I need to upgrade DB2 from version 8.2 to version 9.7 and I was wondering how I should approach this? I have very little experience with DB2 so if there's someone with a little patience who can help me, I would greatly a appreciate it.

    I'm running the two instances of DB2 on AIX 5.3 (if that helps).

    Thank you!

    Good DBAs are not formed in a week or a month. They are created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good DBAs.

    On a serious note, Guy is correct. You should get someone to upgrade.

    since that is a hell of lot cheaper than hiring someone who knows how.
