DB2 V8 Client / DB2 for z/OS Upgrade Path

P: n/a
We have a question about the 'correct' procedure for upgrading our DB2
Run-time clients to V8. These client machines are currently running V7
FP13 and are used to connect to a mainframe DB2 database on z/OS.
Based on the DB2 LUW documentation, we upgraded our DB2 Connect Gateway
machines to V8 first before anything else. We are now in the process
of upgrading DB2 for z/OS to Version 8, and have, in fact, upgraded it
to Version 8 - Compatability Mode. Our basic question now is - should
we upgrade the Run-time clients to V8 before we switch over to New
Function mode on DB2 for z/OS V8 or vice-versa?
