Transition to DB2ExpressC Edition

P: n/a
Hi All
I restored a database backup of db2 version 8.1.3 in DB2ExpressC edition
DB2 8.2.5 .Note that the OS in both cases in windows.It was smooth and
without any issues.There are about 800 user defined stored procedures and
functions.Till now all are behaving nicely.But still I think I should know
the problems which can occur due to this transition.If any one has faced
any problems after a similar transition please tell.

Regards
Praveen

Not sure about relevance, but FYI there is no need to backup/restore
when upgrading a DB2 release.
Before doing major upgrades is recommended to have a backup "just in
case", but it's mere insurance :-)
All you need to do is install the new point release, catalog the
database and run db2updv8 on the database to pick up new functions.

Cheers
Serge

Hi serge
Now we are setting a trial environment in a standalone ,just to check
whether DB2ExpressC would give any problems or not.If te application runs
fine on this then we will change our main dataserver to DB2ExpressC.Still,
I was not aware of this thing which you told.It will certainly help when
we will upgrade our db server.
Thanks again
Praveen
