DB2 7.2 client and 8.2 server?

Folks,

I have an AIX system running DB2 7.2 ESE (or EE or what ever it was called at
that time) and and HP-UX running UDB 7.2 also. The database resides on
HP-UX system and on AIX it is setup as remote database. For several reasons
I cannot upgrade AIX system to 8.2, but I would like to move the database
from HP-UX running 7.2 to another AIX system running UDB 8.2.

If I move the database to AIX running 8.2 and re-define the database on 7.2
system to be a remote database on 8.2, will it work?
Thanks.

Probably not.

Caveat: I have heard rumours than some people have managed to get that
configuration to work if they followed the documented instructions. I am
unable to reproduce their result.

Why can't you install the V8.2 runtime client on your AIX box? You
*can* have both a V7.2 client and a V8.2 client on an AIX box, and
set up 2 client instances.

The apps that need to access the V8 server should set up their
environment using the v8 client's db2profile; the apps accessing a
V7 server should set up their environment with the v7 client's
db2profile.

One of the reasons is that the compiler we are using does not work with
DB2 8.2. We are looking at upgrading it or using another compiler, but
until we decide what to do, I have to stick with 7.2. The HP-UX box is also
old and I would like to get rid of it if I can.
