Migrating from DB2 v6 to v8

Philip Trbovic

Migrating from DB2 v6 to v8
Fellow listers,
I was searching the IBM site and seem to have come up empty and was
hoping that someone out there has performed a migration/upgrade from
version 6 to version 8.1. The current employer is upgrading the CPU and
wants to upgrade DB2 and I would like to go current. Now is the crux of
my dilemma, Can I upgrade from version 6 to version 8.1 without
installing version 7.1/7.2?

TIA

No. IBM has stated emphatically that you must migrate to V7 before going V8
(at least that's the way it is on the mainframe side).

Re: Migrating from DB2 v6 to v8
(in response to Bill Johnson)
Philip,

From the Red Book;
Migration to DB2 V8 is only from DB2 V7, running on z/OS Version 1 Release 3
or higher, and
running on a zSeries processor. If you want to migrate from V6 to this one,
then migrate first to V7, zSeries, and z/OS V1R3 or later.

Looks like a lot of big changes in v8.

Check out the v8 Technical Preview Red Book @
http://www.redbooks.ibm.com/pubs/pdfs/redbooks/sg246871.pdf

Re: Migrating from DB2 v6 to v8
(in response to cliff boley)
Philip,

on the mainframe side, I once migrated on the same day (morning) from 2.3
to 5.1, going thru 3 and 4.
Of course, you'd need a V7.

Re: Migrating from DB2 v6 to v8
(in response to Horacio Villa)
Hi Phil,

Foll. is an extract from the Quick Beginnings for DB2 Servers v8 manual :

"You should be aware of the following restrictions before you migrate to DB2
Version 8:
Migration is only supported from:
– DB2 Version 6.x or Version 7.x. (All platforms supported in Version 6.x
and Version 7.x; Linux must be at Version 6 FixPak 2.)
"

That answers your question, I think. There is more information in the
manual if you need.

Regards,
Kals.

Re: Migrating from DB2 v6 to v8

Phil & Kals,
Just for clarification, the information below applies only to DB2 UDB
for Windows Unix and Linux. DB2 UDB for z/OS Version 8 (not yet GA)
will only support migration from V7. According to Roger Miller, the
V5->V7 skipping V6 path was an anomaly, due to the Y2K issue, and not
something to expect in the future.

Re: Migrating from DB2 v6 to v8

Hi Wayne,

Yes, I realise that. I presumed Phil was referring to UDB LUW, as he was
asking if anybody had performed the migration. If he was referring to
OS/390, then, of course, v8 is still not released.

version 6 to version 8.1. The current employer is upgrading the CPU and
wants to upgrade DB2 and I would like to go current. Now is the crux of
my dilemma, Can I upgrade from version 6 to version 8.1 without
installing version 7.1/7.2?

TIA

Phil, For mainframe, no. For DB2 UDB for Linux, UNIX, and Windows, Yes. For
the latter, check out the migration restrictions in the Quick Beginnings
