 using 32-bit informix software on 64-bit hp-ux 11i
Hi,
We are planning to upgrade our OS from HP-Ux 10.2( 32-bit) to Hp-Ux 11i( 64
bit). We are currently running IDS 7.31UD1. Do i need to upgrade my database
software or the old code will still work on 64-bit os.

Thanks in Advance.

You will have to upgrade your informix software as well - every opsys
version has it's own set of informix software (however I've managed to get
away with different versions on Linux).

I don't think code changes will be necessary though - a recompile should be
ok, but you have to test your programs, which must be done anyway with every
upgrade.

        You will have to upgrade the database server to the 64-bit version.
You can still run your application compiled 32-bit but you will have to use
a network connection to the database.

The following link is the Informix platform roadmap for HP.

http://www-4.ibm.com/software/data/informix/pubs/roadmaps/hp_rmap.html

Besides what the page says (and Bill and Dirk), I was using IDS 7.31UC2
(32bits) in my HP9000 V2200 HPUX 11.0 64 bits for 3 years with no problems.

I moved my engine and 4GL (RDS) from a K250 HP-UX 10.20 to the V2200 with no
change (late 1998).

Contrary to what others have said, I think it should work just fine with
7.31.UDx on HP-UX 11.

We are running 7.31.UD3 on HP-UX 11.0, and so far there have been no
problems. We did have some problems with 7.31.UD1, but I think
those were problems with this particular version of IDS, and not related
to HP-UX, or UD1 vs. FD1.

With IDS 9.X I was told you have to use the 64-bit versions on 64-bit HP-UX 11.

YMMV,

Yes, it is possible to do that, but if you have a support contract with
Informix, it automatically falls away (er, I mean, they won't support you
anymore until you upgrade).
They will only support specific database/platform combinations ...

 using 32-bit informix software on 64-bit hp-ux 11i

Hi, I'm using informix 7.31.ud1 (32 bits) on Solaris 8 (64 bits) with no
evident problems, but for some performance problems, Technical Support of
Miami recomend to upgrade to 7.31.fd1 (64 bits) based on the next (extract
of the technical recommendation":

"...Nuestros productos para Unix vienen con letras U, H y F; La U indica que
es de 32bits, la H que el producto es de 32bits compilado para 64bits
(32bits certificado para correr en 64bits), y F 64bits para trabajar en
64bits, entonces esa es la razn por la cual les recomiendo que instalen
productos de F. El motor debera ser 7.31.FD2 (la ultima), pero segn me
informaste que hay una razn de no usar este (ustedes tuvieron problemas con
7.31.UD2). En el caso de 4GL debe ser 7.30.FC7."

I hope this help you.
