    Re: whether DB2 runtime-client V8.x can talk to DB2 UDB V7.x?

    From the Release Notes :-

    "To access a DB2 UDB Version 7 server on a Linux, UNIX, or Windows
    operating system from a Version 8 client, you must have Version 7 FixPak 8 or later installed on your server and have run the db2updv7 command."


    But I do remember there is no support available for:
    data types like LOBs , security things such as passwords change etc
    communication protocols, including ATTACHING instance ..

    I had issues when my client is v8 when the server is on V7.
    Most of the client utilities does not function very well.
    CCA will create lots of problems.
