Windows, OS/2: No.

Unix, Linux: Yes. One copy of each version can coexist. You cannot
have two installations of the same version at the same time.

You can have two installations of the same version at different
fixlevels if you are in Version 8

That is DB2 UDB ESE only. The subject says "DB2 Connect", which is not
supported for that scenario.

So you cannot have two different version of DB2 Connect installed on
one Unix box?

DB2 you can?

Two different versions, yes. Two different fixlevels (or releases) of
the same version, no (except ESE).

When talking about these terms, it's best to ensure we're talking the
same thing. For IBM, when you see a version such as "8.1.0.16" (which
is v8 FP2 on unix), the "8" is the version, "1" is the release, "0" is
the modification, and "16" is the fixlevel. Thus, the abbreviation is
VRMF.

So, when I say you can have two different *versions* of DB2 installed
at the same time, I'm referring to the first number. v8 FP1 and v8 FP2
are the same version, and thus cannot coexist. v8 FP1 and v7 FP8 are
different versions, and thus can coexist on unix and Linux.
DB2 you can?


DB2 UDB ESE only, you can. DB2 UDB Workgroup editions, no. DB2
Connect, no. Only DB2 UDB ESE.

DB2 Connect: different versions are supported on Linux and UNIX.
different fixpak levels on the same version are only supported if you
install DB2 Enterprise Server Edition, which includes Connect
Application Requestor support

DB2 Enterprise Server Edition: yes, on UNIX and Linux

Darin,

Thank you so much for the clarification. Our groups DB2 Connect
support has recently been dropped in my lap..... and I have very
LIMITED knowledge of this product (fun!).
