Compatible with version 6 and/or 7?

Compatible with version 6 and/or 7?
Hi, We are currently using the P99C release of the CA Products for DB2
(formerly Platinum). Does anyone know if this release is compatible with
DB2 Version 6 and/or 7? We're an OS 390 shop presently on V5 and plan on
upgrading soon.

Thanks in advance for any and all help.

The P99C tape was the first GA release for the 99 series. The 99 series
is the tape series that exploits V6 technology. The currently release
of the 99 tape is P99F.

P99D introduced CA's LMP password system.

Your best bet would be to go with P99F. (Assuming you are using SMP/E
install you would apply P99C RML maint, P99D maint, P99E maint, and P99F
maint tapes.)

P99F is V7 tolerant, meaning it will run on a V7 subsystem but does not
exploit V7 technology.

The P01C tape will be the first GA tape with exploitation of V7
features/functions.

Janice,

According to the last notice I received from CA, the most current release
of the CA-Platinum tools is P99F. They recommend to upgrade to P99D. I
know you need at least P99D for DB2 V6. If I were going to upgrade right
now, I would probably order P99F. Installing P99D was a piece of "work".

Check with your CA salesman for info.

According to a letter I got from CA/Platinum you should be at release P99D
or later. I am going to version 6 of DB2 soon and am upgrading my Platinum
from P97D1 to P99F. I just handed the tapes to my systems programmer today.
I will probably upgrade them at the same time through my subsystems.

We are using P99C (plus several Rapid Reorg PTF's) with DB2 V6. I've
heard you would need P99F for V7.

We were told by CA that P99D tolerates V7. It does (in most cases).
I suspect it would tolerate V6 in more cases.
