Hi, I currently have version 7.0.1.2 running on the aix box
I want to migrate the mq to V 7.5 or above.

now I want to install Mq v 7.5 also on the same box so that we can migrate the QM one by one

when i checked the IBM site it is put only above 7.0.1.6 we can have multi versions of mq on the same box.

the issue is i cannot upgrade to 7.0.1.6 as production is also running on 7.0.1.2

any suggestions are welcome

7.0.1 has been out of support since 2015
MQ 7.0.1.2 is from 2010.

If you need to do go the route of parallel installations, I suggest:

Upgrade non Prod to MQ 7.0.1.14, the latest Fix Pack of 7.0.1.
Then upgrade MQ in Prod to the same version 7.0.1.14.
Then install MQ 8.0.0.6 in Non Prod.

I would not go to 7.5 at this time for the first time - MQ 7.5 end of support is 04-30-2018, just 14 months away. Go to MQ 8, or maybe even MQ 9, although its too new and too shiny for us at this time.
