DB2 server & fixpack installation step

P: n/a
cat
Hi Folks,

We are going to start a grand new project, which is DB2v7 FP10a
sitting on AIX4.3.3 on M80 server. Here is my question,

1) According to Fixpack installation guide, I have to install
Fixpack1(Pre-request of Fixpack 3 installation), Fixpack 3(Pre-request
of Fixpack 10a) in order to successful install Fixpack 10a.Question is
do I have to follow this sequence or there is a way jump to fixpack
10a.

2) I will following install DB2 server ---> install
fixpack----->create instance --->create admin server--->update node
configuration file--->create .rhost file--->start admin
server--->install license key. So I think I do have to do any post
installation like update instance and database, rebind. Am I right?

Looking forward for any suggestion. Thanks

Version 7 Fixpak 3 is the first release of 7.2. You must install FP3 before
any other fixpaks after that. There is a database conversion that gets done
on any existing databases from 7.1 (base code of FP1 or FP2).

The installation readme files explain what tasks need to be done, either
pre-install or post-install, depending on which fixpak it is.

a. install 7.1 aa. install FP1 if you're using 64-bit on AIX4.3.3 (not recommended
since it's not supported in DB2 v8 anymore.)
b. install FP3
c. install FP10a
These all presume that you know which fixpak stream you're interested
in ... 32-bit-only, 32-/64-bit hybrid for AIX4 (starts with FP1), or
32-/64-bit hybrid for AIX5 (starts with FP4).

Hmmm - in an ideal world, you'd be starting with AIX 5.1 or 5.2 and DB2
v8. I'll just presume there are other constraints on these choices.

Correct - if you create the instance after applying the fixpak, there
is no update of instance required.
Looking forward for any suggestion. Thanks

Hi All

Thanks for your answers, it really helpful. Let me introduce the
backgroup of this project. The reason we decide to setup db2v7 fp10a
on AIX 4.3.3 32 bit is we need to move one application from the States
to Toronto server center, so we order a new IBM M80 server, try to
install all the os and database with the same level of the old system,
then just backup and restore it in the new server. I do agree in
'ideal world', we should make it DB2 v8 on aix 5 64 bit, but it's
really important system, user don't want take any risk to update too
much in one shoot.

Anyway, regarding to the Fixpack3 install readme, the prerequisites is
'you should have DB2 UDB V7.1 already installed before installing the
Fixpak'. So I assume if I want to install fp10a, the sequence should
be
1. Fixpack 1 ( prerequisites of install fixpack3)
2. Fixpack 3 ( update to v7.2 as prerequisites of install fixpack 10a)
3. Fixpack 10a.

Then, create instance, create database.

Any suggestion? Thanks

What's life without risk? ;-> Oh yeah. A life with a longer
employment. ;-)
Anyway, regarding to the Fixpack3 install readme, the prerequisites is
'you should have DB2 UDB V7.1 already installed before installing the
Fixpak'. So I assume if I want to install fp10a, the sequence should
be
1. Fixpack 1 ( prerequisites of install fixpack3)
You may be using the wrong fixpak. If you don't want 64-bit, then you
should be sure that you're downloading the 32-bit-only fixpak. It's
smaller, for starters. The 32-bit-only fixpak does not require FP1.
2. Fixpack 3 ( update to v7.2 as prerequisites of install fixpack 10a)
Again, as Blair mentioned, if you start with v7.2 rather than 7.1, you
can bypass both of the above steps.
3. Fixpack 10a.
Thus, it's:

1. V7.2
2. FP10a

Note that v7.2 and FP3 are basically the same, and thus v7.2 would
qualify the same as FP3.
Then, create instance, create database.

Any suggestion? Thanks

You only need Fixpak 1 if you're running 64-bit on AIX 4.3.
