    Unanswered: question on un-installing fixpaks

    We plan to do a fixpak un-install and re-install up to previous version of fixpak for our database server. On FP10a with DB2 UDB 7.2 with AIX 5.2L, would I need to do a restore after un-installing DB2 and the fixpak?

    Thanks

    I don't see it necessary, though I suggest you to take a full offline backup of the database before uninstall

    update on un-install

    Found out that all I needed to do was stop db2

    1. uninstall the fixpaks
    uninstall db2 binaries
    stop db instance
    drop instance
    2. re-install db2 binaries
    3. re-install fixpak
    4. re-create instance
    5. catalog db to new instance

    No restore thankfully was required. Still did take some time to do this however.
