    Unanswered: one server, two version, instances with different vision-- is this possible

    Hi folks,

    We are going to update our db2 udb ee from v7.2 to v8.1 ( on aix 5.1 with fixpack 7). The problem is since our server consociation, we have 2 application running on the same server which including 5 db2 instance.

    Now we want to update one application ( content manager ) on that server to new version which means we need to upgrate 2 instances to db2 v8. At the same time, we will still keep the rest instances on version 7. Just wondering is that possible to keep two version of db2 in one machine, with instances in different version. Anyone has any hints and tips.

    Thanks for your input

    Yes ... It is possible to have two different versions of db2 running on the same aix box ....

    Check an appendix on this topic in the app dev guide

    Thumbs up Re: one server, two version, instances with different vision-- is this possible

    Thanks a lot for your reply. But is that possible to migrate partial instance to a new version and still keep the rest instances in the verstion 7. And keep it running at the same time?

    Regards
