Is DB2 available for PA systems in HP?

Hi,
I am not able to find any DB2 binaries specific to PA machines, my question is that is DB2 supported for PA machines also.

For IA, its is available and its there in IBM site for download also but when I go for PA bits download it shows me as IA support only.

Please let me know if you have any idea and anybody already using DB2 for PA machines.

Hello Narendra,

Only older DB2 releases support PA-RISC.

The current version of DB2 is 9.5 and it only
supports HP-UX 11.23 and 11.31 Itanium.

Cheers,

Hello,

Here is the URL that shows the supported versions of DB2:

http://www-01.ibm.com/software/data/db2/9/sysreqs.html

And, by the way, the current release is
DB2 9.7. I did not even realise it moved up
from version 9.5 :)

"Older versions ... can you please specify which are the versions which supported DB2 for PA machines."

That's the basic problem...the most current version supports integrity only (it appears). You may not be able to newly purchase a version old enough to run on PA-RISC
