DB2
(in response to Endy Lambey)
Hi Guys,

I am new here. For my next job, I am preparing DB2
UDB 7.0 Family Fundamentals Test 512. I have the book
by Baklarz and Wong. I am a little confused because
the book is for both Test 512 and Test 513, and the
objective for the test is not very clear. I really
appreciate if any body can give some suggestions about
the preparation and the exam.

Thanks,

LK

DB2 v.2 to DB2 v.7.1 on RS/6000
Dear all,

We are trying to upgrade DB2 v.2 to DB2 7.1. EE on RS/6000, but our main
problem is that none of us know anything about RS/6000 and DB2 v.2
What are the requirements that we need to know ? Is there any specific
problem that we would encounter and should beware of ?
If anyone can tell us where to find all the necessary information, or even
steps, we would be very thankful.
Best Regards

Fw: DB2 v.2 to DB2 v.7.1 on RS/6000
(in response to Endy Lambey)
V2 to V7 isn't a supported migration path. Two options you
might explore include:
1) V2 to V5.2 (assumes you can get V5 code), then V5.2 to V7.
2) Rebuild your database(s) in V7 by exporting your tables
from V2 then importing into V7. If you need/can't find your
DDL, try IBM supplied program 'db2look'.

While the tasks before you may be substantial, you should find
your efforts well rewarded by performance and feature improvements.

Getting to know your RS/6000 better might be a good first step,
but you'll find AIX(R) to be a very good UNIX(R) implementation
with very nice extensions for space management. UNIX for Dummies
is a good book if you don't know UNIX. Get a book on the 'vi'
editor too.

Good luck,
Scott

Endy,
I think that most of the information is included in the Quick Beginnings
manual, which is available online on the IBM website .
From this manual I understand that migrating to V7 is only supported from
V5.0 or later versions, which in your case appears to be a problem. I reckon
that you will have to migrate to V6 first and then move to V7, but I think
that you should contact IBM for advise on this.
Regards
Bruno
