"Normal" Upgrade from DB2 9

For those organisations who are upgrading from DB2 9 you will need to follow the same overall process as in your DB2 V8 to V9 upgrade:

  • Must be in DB2 9 NFM with all DB2 10 technical pre-reqs met
  • Move to DB2 10 CM (Conversion Mode)
  • Move to DB2 10 NFM via ENFM

Support for "rolling upgrade" in data sharing group.

  • All members must have pre-migration
  • All members must be at DB2 10 CM before ENFM is attempted SPE applied before CM is attempted

The Plan stability feature (PK52523) will be a major advantage for those who have previously suffered from "Rebindaphobia"!
