I think that while QRepl-11.4 will support a 10.5.8
database, the only way to install it is to install Db2 11.1
"On Linux, UNIX, and Windows, the Q Replication V11.4 engine
is part of DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows V11.1 Fix Pack 1.
Choose one of these options:
- If DB2 V11.1 Fix Pack 1 is already installed on your
system, you only need to activate the license for Q Replication
(see activation kits below).
- If you need to install DB2 V11.1, download the DB2 Advanced
Workgroup Server Edition 11.1 for your operating system and use its
installation program to add DB2 to your system. You must also
install DB2 11.1 Fix Pack 1, available from IBM Fix
It seems odd that Db2 10.5.8 is still supported, but that the
bundled replication is out of support - I'd email your IBM rep for
In Reply to Rui Chen:
The first impression is that QRepl-11.4 should support
Db2-luw-10.5fp8, according to "Supported Software" in
"Compatibility Report" (link-1).
However, digging through QRepl-11.4 installation/migration
Knowledge Center articles doesn't provide much instruction on
how-to on Db2-luw other than version 11, and the installation guide
actually makes me wonder if QRepl-11.4 supports
The QRepl upgrade need comes from the fact that IIDR-10.2.1
reached end-of-support in April 2018 (link-3),
and we'd still like to stay with luw-10.5fp8 a little
Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
