Yes, this works fine, as long as you are restoring on the same platform
(i.e. V7 single-platform restrictions still apply).

RESTORE will automatically migrate the database.

Not a problem : it just works (automatically upgrades your database to V8 as
part of the restore process) !!!

Yes, you can restore a v72 backup image to v8.1. The only gotya, is that
the backup must be offline, as you cannot rollforward through any log files.

My test showed that to take a backup of a database in a 32-bit DB2 7.2
instance and restore it to to a DB2 8.1 32-bit instance worked fine,
as it is documented that it should; but to take a backup of a database
in 32-bit DB2 7.2 instance and restore it a DB2 8.1 64-bit instance
failed.
