Add DB2 11.5 support for Sterling Order Management 9.5

End of support for DB2 11.1 is 2022-04-30. We are currently running 9.5 on DB2 11.1.4.6 Advanced Enterprise Server Edition. We would like to upgrade the database to 11.5.6.0 or newer to remain supported.

How will this idea be used?

Keep Sterling Order Management 9.5 running on a supported version of DB2.

    Hi Jason, thank you for submitting your idea. Given that Sterling OMS 9.5 is also end of support in April 2022, we would recommend upgrading to version 10.0, where DB2 11.5 is supported. At this point we are not making stack updates for version 9.5.
