Install NW701 with DB2 9.7?


Hi -

Pardon my ignorance if this has been asked before, I am new to NW installs.

For reasons various, I need to import a sapinst OSDB export of a NW701 image before upgrading it to NW73. This is a fresh NW installation on a new box. Is it possible to install DB2 9.7 from the outset, instead of DB2 9.1, which is the version on Sap Service Marketplace for NW701. The PAM says NW701 & DB2 9.7 are compatible; but I believe only by doing a database upgrade, not by doing a new database installation.

If anyone can advise, I'd be grateful.
