V9 client accessing V7.2 server

P: n/a
Hy,
we have an "old" but running db2 V7.2 server running on OS/2 Warp.
We would like to access it from a Linux Ubuntu machine.
What client should we install ?
Can V9 client access a V7.2 server ?
If not do you have any other solution ?

Thanks

If you can just try it out, but as far as I know it should work.

Hi,

the DB2 client version 9 client can access server versions +/-1. Thus v7
won't work, only 8 to 10. You have to use the v8 client.
Maybe you can install several clients on your linux if you have v9 in
usage or use an appropriate JDBC tape 4 driver (hope this works for v7).

And in fact I get this message:

SQL5048N The release level of the database client is not supported by
the
release level of the database server.

I have to find a way to install a V8 client on linux Ubuntu.
Is there any .deb package for V8 ?
