CLM v6.x does not support WAS v9.x? Whaaat?


Michael Virga (111) | asked Mar 28 '17, 5:12 p.m.

 Hi. We have been doing a migration from Windows to Linux (rhel 7.3.7) on z and upgrading from CLM v5.x to CLM v6.0.3. All running on WAS v9.0.0.3. After several iterations we are very confident that 1, we can do the entire migration in about 6 hours and 2, have tested the heck out of it and it and everything runs great.  As we are about to go to production this weekend, we asked an IBM support person to review our plan to move to production and he tells us that WAS v9.x is not supported and that we should use WAS v8.5... (This is the version we are migrating from ) Is anyone else out there running v6.0.x on WAS v9.x in production? Are you having any issues? Any advice?  Note, we are not doing clustering. We do have CLM spread across 4 Linux servers, all working and talking great even under load...)

 Can anyone comment on when certification of WAS v9.x is expected to happen?

The upcoming 6.0.4 appears to aim for WAS 8.5.5.11, and I can't even find a plan item mentioning the support for WAS 9.0.x. So it appears to be a long wait.

Edit to add: talking about timing. A new plan item was just submitted.

There used to be a support statement for a given version that read along the lines:

Websphere 8.5.5.X and all future versions

Similarly for Java.   WAS 8.5.5.11 fixes more than a few vulnerabilities and 8.5.5.12 is likely on the horizon.    For what it's worth: we have DCC in 8.5.5.11 as well as IBM Cogos BI and by late on April 1, 6.0.3 will be there too.
