Quick Beginnings for DB2 Extended Enterprise Edition for UNIX


To ensure that all databases on your system can be migrated to DB2 Version 5, perform the following steps:

  1. Complete all database transactions.

  2. Ensure all applications disconnect from each database.

  3. Ensure all databases are cataloged.

    Figure hint not displayed.

    The db2ckmig database migration verification command does not verify uncataloged databases. See "Verify that Databases Can Be Migrated" for a description of how db2ckmig works.

  4. Make a backup copy of all databases. Refer to the Administration Guide for your DB2 product for information on making a backup copy of a database and to the Command Reference for the syntax of the backup command.
    Note:Make sure that this is the most recent backup copy of the database before you start the next procedure.

  5. Stop the database manager by issuing the db2stop command.

  6. If you are migrating from DB2 Parallel Edition Version 1.x, make a backup copy of the INSTHOME/sqllib/db2nodes.cfg file and store it in a different directory.
