Our mission-critical system on the IBM i 7.1 has been in operation. But we are promoting the project that upgrades our IBM i 7.1 to i 7.3, because of software withdrawal and support discontinuance. So that also DBMS become upgrade to Db2 for i V7R3M0. As you know, We have IBM Db2 LUW data server client version 10.5, that has won't support DB2 for I V7R3M0. And IBM Db2 LUW data server client version 11.1 has supported Db2 for i V7R3M0. But our IBM LUW db2 data server client version 10.5 runs on the platform RHEL ppc64 Bigendian. Therefore, we cannot upgrade to Db2 LUW data server client version 11.1, and we cannot continue business applications uses Db2. This is a difficult big problem for our business. We require DB2 to extend the scope of support for either of the following two. 1. IBM Db2 LUW should add "Db2 for i V7R3M0" to the support range of "Db2 connect V10.5". 2. IBM Db2 LUW should add the platform of "RHEL ppc64 bigendian" to the support range of "Db2 data server client V 11. 1".
