UDB 7.2 DB binary-compatible between OS/2 and Windows?


We currently access a DB with UDB 7.2 Workgroup Edition under OS/2 in a
Virtual PC session on a Windows server. Is this DB created with UDB for OS/2
binary-compatible with a UDB server 7.2 for Windows? In other words, can I
remove UDB 7.2 for OS/2 from that server, install UDB 7.2 for Windows and
safely open the original database?

No, you can not simply use the same files. It is also not possible to
restore a backup image from DB2/OS2 under Windows, as far as I know.

You will have to:

1. export all data with db2move
2. export the Database DDL with db2look
3. export the instance settings with db2cfexp
4. install DB2 under Windows
5. apply all neccessary FixPaks
6. create your instance, import the settings with db2cfimp
7. create the database, using your DDL script
8. load the data
9. make a backup

Remember to keep the OS/2 Server around until you are sure you will not
need to restore any old backups.

You will not have to change your applications, apart from recataloging
the database of course.

Greetings,

Martin Neumann
