    Unanswered: Problems restoring DB on adifferent server using backup

    Hello all!

    I work with two servers, one for production (DB2 v8.1, AIX) and another for test (DB2 v7.1, AIX)
    I tried to restore (create new db) on test server using backup of production. I got the following massage:

    SQL2069N An invalid image was encountered on media
    "/home/db2inst1/backup/prod.0.db2inst1.NODE0000.CATN0000.200305161414". The image was created for database alias "".

    Looking at the internet for this massage I've found that this was problem for DB2 v.7 but not for version 8:

    Someone before wrote: "The good news is that this is supported with V8. V8 backup images (this does not include restoring downlevel images) from AIX, Sun, and HP are now identical. This has been resolved in version 8."


    So, because I'm not "restoring downlevel images" I don't understand why this doesn't work. I'm restoring v.8 image. It may be that this doesn't work for restoring v.8 image to v.7 ... Or I have another problem?

    Thank you in advance
    Nicole

    I think restoring from V8 to V7 is not supported ...

    The discussion you have referenced was about restoring database from one platform to another ...
