Workgroup and DB2 Express are both available in v8.1. The 8.1
announcement letter is here:

Express is described in a May/2003 announcement.

V8 comes in two and a half flavors.
1) DB2 V8 Workgroup Server Edition, known as WSE
2) DB2 V8 Entreprise Server Edition, known as ESE
That edition has a feature known Partition Database Facility (the ½),
which allows you to partition the db and its tablespaces on
logical/physiucal nodes in one or more boxes.
HTH, Pierre.

You might also read the following article from DB2 Developer Domain,
it explains the differences between the various licensing options:

Or do we need to reinstall ? I know you can't upgrade Express-C to a...

Hi hi everyone. We have upgraded our DB2 LUW 8.2.1 which was directly installed from our DB2 CD's to DB2 LUW 8.2.6 (FP13). (system: HP DL385 (AMD64), single socket, dual core. 8GB memory. SLES 10.
