    Question Unanswered: Know problems with DB2 UDB v6 on AIX

    We are ina situation that for the time being requires us to run DB2 UDB V6 on AIX 4.3.3. The system is :-
    RS/6000
    12 processors
    64 Gig Ram
    Database backs up to 40Gigs (compressed)

    Recently we have set on Extended Memory (16 Gigs) and we have had some strange problems :-
    Unable to stop database - db2stop wont work
    and
    Failure of system due to SIGDANGER ie paging space exhuasted.

    Has anyone got references to reported problems of this nature that we can get to encourage our business to move to V7.2 and AIX 5l ?

    PS: I know what we should be doing, but the client will not move unless we can come up with some pretty solid evidence. They have just paid for a consultant who recommeded the Extended Memory, even while we were trying for the upgrade.
    thanks

    Well, I do not know of any specific evidence of reported problems ..

    But, the following page will show that IBM no longer supports V6.1 .. So if you have any problems with your database, you are in deep trouble .. It is not V7.2 that you should migrate now, it should be Version 8
