Overview

To reduce the complexity of ordering AIX®/pSeries® software, a single ordering method will now be used to order all supply features, such as product media and software maintenance, for AIX/pSeries initial orders and upgrades. Previously, supply features for some products were ordered under the licensed product (for example, 5765-F83) whereas others were ordered under the Software Maintenance (SWMA) product number (for example, 5771-AIX, 5771-SUB).

All supply features will now be ordered under the current pSeries System Program Order (SPO), 5692-A5L.

A supply feature is a four-character numeric or alpha/numeric representation of a specific AIX/pSeries operating system or licensed product software deliverable. Refer to Software withdrawal 904-079 , dated April 27, 2004, for IBM Licensed Products, Software Maintenance, ITS, and Bonus Pack supply features.

All SWMA orders created on or after April 27, 2004, will be available through supply features on the AIX SPO.

Customization options: A new "no charge media" feature number 1005 will be introduced for SPO (5692-A5L) orders to deliver media at no charge to the customer. Effective with this announcement, AIX/pSeries media and publications for SWMA will be delivered through the SPO. A new pSeries SPO will be generated when delivery of AIX/pSeries media and/or publications are specified. If feature number 1004 exists on a prior SPO, feature number 1005 will be generated for the new SPO. If feature number 1004 does not exist on a prior SPO, it will be generated for the new SPO.
