DB2 and Freeway

DB2 and Freeway
We are running DB2 v6.1 on OS/390 V2.8, on one G5 and
one G6 CMOS processor (sysplexed, but no datasharing).
We are about to install a 2064 (Freeway) processor as a
replacement for the G5 box. Anyone else running DB2 for
OS/390 on a 64-bit machine yet ? If so, any strangeness to
look out for ?

TIA,

We are building a sub system on our new freeway box to join a 2 way ds
system. Anyone doing something similar?

We just upgraded one of our CPU's to the new Freeway, M1C6 I believe, with
has 3 lpar's all in syslplex and holding 7 DB2 regions. Some stand alone
and 2 are members of a DS groups whose other members are still running on a
9672-R65. We have had no problems so far. Upgraded December 30th. We did
put on several PTF's for DB2, IDMS, and others to support 64 bit when we
get the ZOS operating system.
