Philip Gunning's book "DB2 Universal Database v8 Handbook for Windows, UNIX,
and Linux" is a good reference that will allow you to look at the
differences. There is also a whitepaper comparing the two environments. I
will try to find it and let you know where to it is.

(in response to dj53tx-udb@YAHOO.COM)
The Pilgrim's Progress by Bunyan is what I recommend most - you'll need
it read out loud to you during your journey...

Joking aside, get hold of a really good AIX (or Unix) for Dummies book,
as well as a book about Unix commands and shell scripting.

There used to be a joint venture YSL/BMC Cross-Family DB2 guide that was
EXCELLENT but Susan Lawson told me recently it's out of print (sold out,
flew off the shelves like hot cakes a couple of years ago) - maybe Susan
might have a soft-copy for you to have?

Then there are a couple of presentations I could send you if you want,
let me know and I'll fish them out.

Thanks.

Aurora

"Understanding DB2: Learning Visually with Examples" Chong et al ISBN 0131859161 is also
good. Especially if, like me, you score a free copy off IBM for answering a survey.

Re: Books for a DBA moving from DB2 z to DB2 AIX
(in response to Barbara Koenen)
Hi Warren I wrote a whitepaper called "Breaking the DB2 Platform Barrier". It is designed to familiarize z/OS DBA's with the architecture of DB2 LUW. You can download it from our website: http://www.quest.com/documents/list.aspx? searchoff=true&contenttypeid=1&technology=2 Cheers Jim IMPORTANT NOTICE:
