Ordering Information

VisualAge® C++ is a server product that has one charge unit: Authorized User. These are available in fixed order quantities of one user.

Note: VisualAge C++, V6.0 is licensed based on a charge unit of one authorized user per operating system. Separate user authorizations are required by individual users for each operating system on which the program is used. For each user authorization on a given operating system, the program may be stored on more than one machine, provided that the program is not in active use by that individual user on more than one machine at the same time.

An authorized user is an individual or specific named user authorized to have access to the program or any portion of the program on a single operating system. The Proof of Entitlement (PoE) for this program is evidence of your authorization. Each individual or specific named user must obtain a PoE for each operating system on which the program is used.

IBM XL Fortran is a server product that has one charge unit: Authorized User. These are available in fixed order quantities of one user.

Note: IBM XL Fortran V8.1 is licensed based on a charge unit of one authorized user per operating system. Separate user authorizations are required by individual users for each operating system on which the program is used. For each user authorization on a given operating system, the program may be stored on more than one machine, provided that the program is not in active use by that individual user on more than one machine at the same time.

An authorized user is an individual or specific named user authorized to have access to the program or any portion of the program on a single operating system.

IBM Electronic Services

IBM Global Services has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to put you on the road to higher systems availability. IBM Electronic Services is a Web-enabled solution that provides you with an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support on the IBM eServer™. You should benefit from greater system availability due to faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. IBM Electronic Services comprises two separate but complementary elements: IBM Electronic Services news page and IBM Electronic Service Agent™.

IBM Electronic Services news page provides you with a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used by customers to access IBM Internet services and support. By using the news page, it enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The IBM Electronic Service Agent is a no-additional charge software that resides on your IBM eServer system that is designed to proactively monitor events and transmit system inventory information to IBM on a periodic customer-defined timetable. The IBM Electronic Service Agent tracks system inventory, hardware error logs and performance information. If the server is under a current IBM maintenance service agreement or within the IBM Warranty period, the Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to provide proactive service that maintains higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent will be made available to IBM service support representatives when they are helping answer your questions or diagnosing problems.
