    Unanswered: Movement between Db2 levels.

    I know that you can't move a Db backup of a higer version and restore it on a lower version. Like you can't restore a backup from 9.7 on 9.5.


    My question is that does this apply to fixpack too ??

    Can you not restore a db backup from db29.7 fixpack 5 on a db2 9.7 fixpack 3a??

    You might consider asking DB2 support.

    If you are only going back to a previous FixPack, why not just upgrade to the same or later Fixpack on the target?

    It should work in most cases. I think the easiest way to figure this out would be to try it yourself (and share the results here).

    "It does not work" is not a valid problem statement.
