DB2 on AIX, CI and DI on Linux - kernel question

Hello All,

We are moving our SAP (ECC6.0) Central Instance and Application Servers from AIX to Linux RH 5.4 and leaving our DB (DB6 9.1.0003) on AIX. Will we have to maintain 2 sets of SAP kernels, one for the DB on AIX and one for the CI and Application Servers on Linux. Thanks in advance for any help.

    Not if you don't run any SAP software on your database server.

    Hi Terry,

    the db monitoring programs of the SAP system run a couple of kernel executables on the database server directly. There is e.g. a special library db6pmudf in the kernel which contains SAP specific table functions. So you still need the AIX kernel for this case

    Best regards

    You'll need to install an ccms agent on the db server if you want to see os stats.
