6.1.2 Install DB2 UDB V8.1 Fix Pack 4a
We installed IBM DB2 UDB V8.1 Fix Pack 4a for 32-bit Windows. We chose to
use Fix Pack 4a for several reasons. First, IBM Tivoli Directory Server V5.2,
WebSphere Portal V5.0.2, DB2 Content Manager V8.2 plus Fix Pack 6, and DB2
Information Integrator for Content plus Fix Pack 6 officially support DB2 UDB
V8.1 Fix Pack 4a. Also, we wanted to use the same version of DB2 fix pack on all
of the nodes for DB2 compatibility reasons.
Note: The DB2 UDB installation with the Typical installation type takes
approximately 376 MB of disk space.
