Use of components on separate machines . WebSphere Business Integration V4.1 composite component consists of several run-time elements:
Note CrossWorlds InterChange server release levels
Combinations of these run-time elements must be installed on up to three registered machines at any one time under the terms and conditions of the WebSphere Business Integration V4.1 license. It is the use of the WebSphere Business Integration V4.1 that determines how Capacity Unit (CU) requirements are calculated. If the WebSphere Business Integration V4.1 is required on multiple servers, additional CUs for each server will be required. Calculations must be made using the appropriate type of processor for the operating system in use.
The customer must identify the machines on which they will install WebSphere Business Integration V4.1. The customer or program provider must identify the number or processors in each machine and then calculate the total number of licenses required.
Problem determination (PD) is a customer responsibility. PD is an assessment of whether a problem is caused by hardware or software. PD is complete only when the cause of the problem is identified. This assessment includes examination of available symptoms using the PD procedures documented in the product.
Problem source identification (PSI) is a customer responsibility. PSI begins when software is determined to be the source of the problem. PSI includes tracing the source of the program to a host system control program (SCP), an application program, or another source. Assisting the customer with PSI is an IBM service and support responsibility.
