A problem we've run into when we started our migration to Client Access 6.1 is that the version of the IBM.Data.DB2.iSeries assembly went from 10.0.0.0 (with V5R4) to 22.214.171.124 (with V6R1). We immediately started getting messages complaining about not finding the right version of IBM.Data.DB2.iSeries. After we tracked it down to the new version of Client Access, we found that we'd either have to recompile all of the .NET objects that use the database against the new version, or put in binding redirects in the machine.config file. Since we are in a mixed environment, we just set up the binding overrides to make everything pretend it's on 5.4's driver.

Subject: Re: .NET application iSeries Access requirement???
I should work. We use V5.4 for the driver and the server is at 6.1. The only thing is that later versions of Client Access has more .NET features (I can't recall what is was off the top of my head). But every server/application/desktop needs that uses the .NET program also needs to be upgraded. It's a PITA that we haven't done here yet.

We currently have a home grown .NET application that runs on Win PC
running XP/SP3 and Win 7/SP1 using IBMi Access V5.4 to a Power6
system running IBMi V6.1.1.
We are planning on upgrading our Power6 system to V7.1.
My question is: Does anyone know if the PC configuration mentioned
above will have to be upgraded to a more current IBMi Access release
(like V7.1) or will the .NET application continue to work without
having to upgrade a BUNCH of PC's?
