Currently we are running DB2 ESE V8.1 32 bit on AIX 5.3. We need to migrate this to DB2 V9.5
Since DB2 V9.5 doesn't support 32 bit instances, do we first need to migrate DB2 V8.1 32 bit to V8.1 64 bit and then DB2 V8.1 64bit to V9.5 64 bit ? Or if we migrate V8.1 32 bit instance to 9.5, it automatically does the bit conversion as well ?
Any help on this regard would be greatly appreciated.
