    Unanswered: Informix Dynamic Server 7.3 -> 9.3 migration

    I have been asked to prepare teh migration of our engine from IDS 7.3 to IDS 9.3.

    We are running on AIX 4.3.3, with a database of 70GB.

    I was wondering if anyone has information on that, in particular :

    a) Warnings
    b) Remarks/comments
    c) Performances
    d) Lesson learned


    Thanks,

    Phil

    No big issues. This is an easy migration.

    I had one issue with a reserved word: UPPER. The customer had his own UPPER function.

    Check the reserved word list.

    Make sure you follow the procedure mentioned in the migration guide.

    Thank you

    Thank you, and sorry for the time I took to answer.

    What is your suggestion regarding the unload/upload tool ?

    You should really read the migration guide before
    asking these questions.

    There is no need to unload the data. You can simply upgrade
    from 7.3 to 9.3 by re-starting the databaseserver with the
    new software.

    Best regards
