    Unanswered: db2 client fixpack question

    I'm upgrading my db2 database and all clients from the GA release level to Fixpack 9 (via FP3). The readme instructions have me running db2iupdt and db2updv7, and the db2 BIND <path>/@db2ubind.lst BLOCKING ALL GRANT PUBLIC, db2 BIND <path>/@db2cli.lst BLOCKING ALL GRANT PUBLIC commands. My question is - do I have do run all/any of these on all the client machines, or just on the database host?

    On another note - it took me a 300mb download of the FP9 level client to realize that it won't upgrade an existing client on Solaris, it's only good for a new install despite this notice on the download page "You can use a client package to install a new client from scratch, or to upgrade an existing DB2 client to the current FixPak level". Grrrr

    Re: db2 client fixpack question

    For every operating system - DB2 level combination, you will have to bind db2ubind.lst and db2cli.lst

    This infomration has been clearly mentioned in the Readme file of the fixpack
