Pinned topic backup and restore different versions of db2

Can I make a backup of the database db2 from version 8.2 and restore to the version 10.1? How can I do this between different versions?

    You can upgrade to 10.1 using an offline backup image from a previous release, but only from releases which are supported for upgrade, and that's usually 2 or 3 prior releases. Here's a relevant page from the official docs.

      Do you know where I can download the "version" 9 of db2? I looked on the IBM website but could not find any link to download version 9

        This should offer a good starting point.
