Since DB2 is "built-in" to the operating system, then if you have i5/OS V6R1, then you automatically have DB2 for i version 6.1.

Analogously, if you have an operating system level of V5R3, you automatically have version 5.3 of DB2.

etc .. etc

Ah, that clears it up nicely, thank you Dave. Is there a SQL query that can be run to obtain the OS/DB2 version once a JDBC connection is established?

Hmmm ... that's a good question. I know how to get that data from the operating system command-line, but I don't know how to get it from a SQL query.  It probably exists, but I'm not aware of where to get it.

If I absolutely had to get it that way, I'd have someone on the operating system side generate the data for me. Then, I could query the generated data.

e.g. from OS/400 command-line, you could do:

DSPPTF OUTPUT(*OUTFILE) OUTFILE(MyLibrary/AllPtfs)

Then, from SQL, you'd do:

SELECT distinct SCXPFV      
FROM   MyLibrary/AllPtfs

SYSTEM RELEASE
----------------------
050300

This corresponds to V5R3 of i5/OS and therefore v5.3 of DB2.

Try the following query:

GET DIAGNOSTICS DB2_PRODUCT_ID

http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/iseries/v5r4/index.jsp?topic=/db2/rbafzmstgetdiag2.htm

Format of the returned Product_ID is documented in the DB for i5/DB2 SQL Reference:
