    Unanswered: DB2 UDB 10.5 client install

    Hello,

    I have a DB2 ESE AIX server with two versions installed:
    9.7 - database1
    10.5 - database2

    My application is located in another AIX server, it has the DB2 9.7 client already installed.
    I need to install the DB2 10.5 client version. it will be installed on /opt/IBM/db2/V10.5 so it can coexist with the 9.7 version.

    I need to have user1 accessing both database1 (9.7) and database2 (10.5).

    I already have /home/user1/sqllib for 9.7 created by "db2icrt -s client user1".
    Can I have user1 accessing database2 (10.5)? In this case should I use another directory? Like /home/user1/sqllib2?

    Thank you,
    Tony

    You only need one client to access both databases. Use the 9.7 client.

    Don't I need the client to be at the same level as the server?
    In this case a 10.5 and a 9.7 client to access the respective server?

    No really. We have clients at 9.5 accessing a 10.1 server.

    Depends on if you have an application that specifically requires client-side functionality not present in your V9.7 client but which is present in your V10.5 client - for example certain encryption aspects not present in the V9.7 client that are present in the V10.5 clients (tip: always use the most recent client fixpack, never use the base version!).

    Remember that if you use the V9.7 client to access V10.5 databases, the DBA should bind the V9.7 client bindfiles against the V10.5 databases.
    Similarly, if you use the V10.5 client to access V9.7 databases you would bind the V10.5 client bindfiles to the V9.7 databases (you will get some exceptions can be ignored)
