Hi,

AIX level: 5.2.0.0
db2 level : DB2 v7.1.0.98

This is the current level on our machine. Now we want to migrate to v8 of DB2. I understand V9 cannot reside as OS level is low.

If it possible for 2 version of DB2 to reside on this AIX server. Also, What are the compatible versions.

Thanks!

This talks about v8 and v9 co-existance. Can v7 and v8 co-exist on same AIX server. What are the limitations if so.

IBM has ended standard support for DB2 v8 since 2009-04-30.
It's better to use v9 unless you have bought extended service for v8.

v7 is not supported, but should be fine if you use different accounts/ports.
mind the AIO resources - why not move everything to new DB and use old clients if there is no other way?
