DB2 v10.1 Fix pack information required


Hi Friends,

I am looking for an upgrade of my DB2 v 10.1 fix pack level 2 to fix pack level 4 or 5 for SAP running on AIX version 7.1 64 bit.

Can anyone please answer some of my queries below:

  1. What will be the benefits of installing the latest FixPack?
  2. Will Fix pack upgrade boost the performance of the database at any level?
  3. Is it safe to go for the latest FixPack available i.e 5 or a lower version 4 should be preferred?

I do know that these FixPacks contains fixes to the bugs found in the earlier versions.

4. How do i get the fixes contained in DB2v10.1 fix pack level 4?

    Dear Winston ,

    A ) First consider the following Note's

    Choose a the latest supported fix pack ( on a db6 version ) apprroved by SAP for your system .


    B) Consdier whether you are on the recommended TL level for AIX for the db6 base version

    Please consider the following link as well when choosing the FIX pack level ( As your underlying OS is AIX )

    C ) Search in service market place " DB6 :Known Errors and available Fixes " as an answer to your query no 4 and

    Dear Winston

    You can always refer to IBM documentation regards to Fixes that are included in newly release database Fixpacks.

    You can check below link for further information


    http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.ws?uid=swg21610653

    In there you can select relevant FixPacks for further details.

    Not necessarily all Fixpacks to fix performance issues.

    It is always recommended to use latest fixpack version when you are upgrading.

    Hope it helps


    Thanking you
    Regards
    Venkat.
