DB2 v8 NFM and DB2 v9 Upgrade
Hi,

We are just planning to convert from v8 CM to NFM. The planning and
implementation may last a few months. And v8's End-Of-Support date is
probably round the corner, maybe end of 2011, which means we have to
start planning to implement v9 as well soon.

Now, can we fasttrack v8 NFM conversion, and do the v9 upgrade at the
same time ? (in effect reduce the no. of times we have to do testing).

Or, do we have to (or is it better) to spend in v8 NFM for a while before
moving to v9 ? Anyone out there in the same situation ?

Thanks

Regards,
Kals

Kals:

We are seeing a number of customers who are getting caught by the automatic rebinds caused by a version-to-version migration. V8 rebound V3R1 or lower packages. V9 will rebind V4R1 or lower. Many people got past the V8 automatic rebinds, but are getting caught by V9. As with V8 there is an IBM program that will detail those packages that are at risk.

If you want to discuss offline what we are seeing, please contact me.
