With advancement of technology, Connect Direct needs to compatible with new OS versions and DB versions
We noticed that Connect Direct ver 6.0 is only compatible with Windows 2016 and SQL 2016. There are new versions of both Windows and SQL are available like SQL 2017, SQL 2019.
ABN AMRO who is one of the prestigious strategic customer of IBM is using Sterling suite of products like Sterling File Gateway Solution, Connect Direct etc.
We are planning upgrade of Connect Direct to ver 6.0 but we noticed that it is not certified with SQL 2017 / SQL 2019.
We would be needing confirmation from product team that Connect Direct ver 6.0 is compatible with SQL 2017/SQL 2019
What is your industry?
How will this idea be used?
We are running upgrade project from Connect direct 4.9 to Connect Direct 6.0 and certification that Connect direct ver 6.0 is compatible with SQL 2017/SQL 2019 will really help us in upgrading current version before it goes out of support in Sep-2021
