Hi,

Does anybody knows whether DB2 v6.1 client can connect to DB2 v1.2 on OS/2 using netbios?

Is there any article that says that it is not supported ?

It won't.  The formula for IBM support is -1 and +2.  Each client can connect to the same release, and one prior release and 2 future releases.  At least that's what a support person told me on the phone.  

We keep a version 5 client around because it can reach back to version 2 (which is considered 1 version prior - there was no version 3 or 4 on most platforms), and forward to versions 6 and 7.  Strangely, it can only connect to 7.1, not 7.2.  

I don't know if there is an official support matrix from IBM, it would be handy.  

Any chance you can upgrade the OS/2 database to 2.1.2?  As I recall, this was not a very painful upgrade, although there may have been a database conversion.  It's been a long time...

You probably need to talk to IBM about licensing, but you can also download trial versions from IBM's web site: http://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/download/category.jsp?s=c&cat=data

I expect the 7.1 client would work with a version 6 server, but I haven't tried it.  I expect the 7.2 client might not.

Good Luck!
