DB2 9.7 FP3 and DB2 9.5 FP6
Replaced with

Audience:  All users who requesting the following fix packs:
  • DB2 Version 9.7 fix pack 3
  • DB2 Version 9.5 fix pack 6
What changed?
The fix packs (9.7 FP3 and 9.5 FP6) were removed from Fix Central due to two Hiper APARs that could effect all users. These APARs may cause serious issue with the Query Rewrite component if installed. Fixes for the two Hiper APARs were created and delivered in the following replacement fix packs:
DB2 9.7 FP3_special and DB2 9.5 FP6a.
APARs: The two Hiper APARs that were discovered are:
Executing a query with left outer join and an IS NULL predicate may cause a reverse column output or produce a SQL0901N error
Possible incorrect result on recursive views which joins to a table on a unique column
When did this happen?The fix packs were removed on September 17, 2010.
The replacements were uploaded on September 30, 2010.
Action required:Please use the updated fix packs to obtain the fixes for the Hiper APARs.
