Are you going to upgrade both aix and db2? We're on aix 433 and udb eee 7.2 fp 7, both 32 bit. aix 433 support runs out in Dec and UDB 7 sometime next year. We are also in the planning stage. Some think that it is too much of a risk to do both aix and db2 since it will be difficult to isolate which layer issues are arising from. On the other hand the size of the DW will increase the outages involved and there will be a lot of testing overlap. Any recommendations, experts?
we will upgrade both aix and db2 so its a big project. The AIX upgrade will be performed first from 4.3.3 to 5.2 AIX since IBM stops support by end of this year for AIX 4.x. DB2 will be from 7.2 to 8.1 or 8.2 since we purchased the software already. Thanks for your input I just need to carefully plan since its a major undertaking.
