Question about UDB on AIX

Question about UDB on AIX
Hi:
I have a several UDB installs on a dev AIX machine here. Version 5.1, 6.1,
and 7.1. I recently tried to add 7.2 to this box and ran the db2setup
utility. After completion of installing the DB I created a new instance
with that user. When I try to connect to it, I get the CLI version of 7.1
and can't find 7.2 anywhere. Is there any way that I can uninstall what
I've already installed and try it again?
thanks, Dave

Dave,

I'm not sure if this is the problem or not, but v7.2 and v7.1 with fixpak 3 are
one and the same, I think. I'm wondering if it might be telling you it is
connected to v7.1, when it really is connected to v7.2?

Judy

Dave,

I believe that while different versions of UDB can co-exist on a single
machine (e.g. v5.1, v6.1, v7.1), different releases within a version cannot
co-exist on the same machine. That is, you cannot have v7.1 and v7.2 on
the same machine.

I seem to remember this being talked out some time ago, you may want to
search the archives for more information.

Yes you can have different versions on the same machine however, you can
not be running two different versions of the admin server. That one has to
be the latest version. You can not run to different service levels, ie
fixpacks. You also can not uninstall a fix pack. We found that out the
hard way. On our NT environment we installed fp 4 for version 7 and lets
just say that things did not work out to well. We had to totally uninstall
db2 and reinstall it. Not very much fun.

Hi Dave,
Through smitty, go to uninstall the software option and select all the db2
v7.2 filesets (like db2_07_01.xxx 7.x.x.x), it removes all db2 v7.2.. There
is no direct method from db2setup..

Thanks
Kishore Kolla
