Unanswered: Using a old database in new db2 installation
I was using a DB2 trial installation during 90 days on Windows. With this installation I created a database (CARS-CLIENTS) and stored a big amount of data on it (I didn't make any backup :-(.
Now my trial licence is over.
I uninstall the previous DB2 version and installed a new on DB2 Express.
The question is, HOW CAN I RETRIEVE THE DATA FROM THE OLD DB2 installation (it is in the old DB2 directorate of the previous DB2 installation)?
I would be VERY GRATEFULL if any one could help me.
I'd try copying the files to the target system using exactly the same directory structure as in the old system. Assuming you have installed DB2 and created a new instance using all the same parameters as before, issuing CATALOG DB whatever ON C: might just work.
