Supported Db2 Fixpack with Delphix Engine

Delphix does not support different Db2 versions for interdependent datasets at the same time if they are in a parent-child relationship. VDB provision or refresh may fail in the case where the instance containing its parent dataset is on a different Db2 version. Before you upgrade the Db2 version of the instance containing the VDB dataset, ensure that the instance containing the parent dataset is also upgraded to the same version. Refer to the Db2 support matrix.
