I believe Microsoft recently released version 4.0 of the DB2 OLEDB driver.
Under the feature pack of SQL 2008 R2 you can only find v 3.0 of this driver.
I can only find this driver for SQL2012 . Is it possible to use it on SQL 2008 R2 ? The installation guide mentions it here : http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh873008.aspx
Has anyone tried this ?
Has anyone tried to update from V3 to V4 ?

You can download the 4.0 DB2 provider from this link:
After you click download, you will be asked to download a PDF file, in the PDF file, you can see that this provider is supported both by SQL Server 2008 R2 and 2012.
Please remember to mark the replies as answers if they help and unmark them if they provide no help.

Okay, thanks for the answer. I will try it myself.
When I do an Upgrade, should I remove and recreate the linked servers or will they pick up the new driver ? I hope the last.
