    Unanswered: DB2 - OS upgrade

    DB2 9.7 ESE FP8 / Win 2008 R2.

    We are thinking to upgrade the OS from 2008 R2 to Win 2012.
    As the application supports only DB2 V9.7, we are not in a possition to upgrade the DB2 right now.

    So, What is the process of upgrading the OS while DB2 9.7 runs on the server. (we are not going to get a new server).

    please share your views and experience.

    Since DB2 9.7 clearly is not supported on Windows 2012, I would consider the OS upgrade only if I had no other option. The way you phrase it (we are thinking) it doesn't sound inevitable, so I suggest you leave this server alone.

    If you still feel the urge to upgrade the OS, upgrade it to Linux.
    "It does not work" is not a valid problem statement.

    Is it in infocenter?

    I have read in inforcentre that v9.7 FP8 will support Windows8 and Win 2012.
    (may be misunderstood)
    I will re-visit the site.
