Overview

Newly configured IBM eServer pSeries® systems with an AIX® operating system will include the restructured Software Maintenance (SWMA) for AIX Operating Systems when AIX is designated as running on the active processors. This support is also available for customers with existing AIX operating system licenses.

SWMA continues to offer:

  • Software upgrade entitlement within the coverage period for eligible AIX operating system software
  • Access to IBM remote technical software support
  • Processor-based pricing for renewals that is based on the number of active processors running AIX per system
  • Entitlement beginning with your new pSeries hardware installation date
  • Coverage options of one year or three years

    All newly configured pSeries servers with an AIX operating system selected come standard with a minimum of one year of SWMA. A three-year coverage option is also available and will be the default for orders placed in the configurator.

The restructured SWMA uses a single program number for managing either the one-year or three-year coverage options. The restructured SWMA replaces the existing SWMA offerings (5771-SUB, 5773-SUB, 5771-SPT, and 5773-SPT).

All SWMA orders created on or after April 27, 2004, will follow the new program number offering structure (5771-SWM and 5773-SM3).

The components (technical support and software subscription) that make up SWMA will not generally be offered separately.

Requests for clarification or special requests related to the separate components, content, or pricing of Software Maintenance for AIX should be directed through the Regional/Country SBO organization.

SWMA for AIX Operating Systems

Discounting of SWMA when migrating from Enhanced AIX Operating System Subscription

Customers who have an existing IBM Enhanced AIX Operating System Subscription contract and want to move to restructured SWMA before the expiration of the Enhanced AIX Operating System Subscription contract will be eligible for discounts on the new SWMA contract as indicated in the following terms and conditions. These discounts apply to the purchase of SWMA only.

The following terms and conditions apply:

  • When purchasing a one-year or three-year SWMA contract, you may be eligible for a discount if you are migrating from a qualifying existing IBM Enhanced AIX Operating System Subscription contract, which includes:
    • One year: 5771-AIX
    • Three year: 5773-AIX
  • The discounts, when eligible, will apply to the subscription and support charges that make up the restructured SWMA:
    • 5771-SWM SWMA for AIX 1-Year
    • 5773-SM3 SWMA for AIX 3-Year
  • The discount amount will be calculated based on the migration of a single IBM Enhanced AIX Operating System Subscription contract to a single new SWMA contract. For consolidation of multiple existing contracts into a single new contract, submit a special bid request.
  • When a discount is applied to the purchase of a new SWMA contract in consideration of the remaining term of an existing Enhanced AIX Operating System Subscription contract, the existing Enhanced AIX Operating System Subscription contract will be cancelled upon installation of the new SWMA contract. This will establish a new contract anniversary date for SWMA. It will not be possible to maintain the anniversary date of the existing Enhanced AIX Operating System Subscription contract.
  • ServiceSuite™ contracts that are cancelled or adjusted as a result of migrating to SWMA contracts will be credited separately.
  • The discount of converting an Enhanced AIX Operating System Subscription contract to an SWMA contract cannot be used in combination with other promotions or discounts (such as IVO).
  • No refunds will be issued.

The following rules apply to the discounting:

  • Discount given only to AAS-generated contracts (SWS)
  • Credit on ServiceSuite Advanced contracts — business as usual
  • Six levels of discounting applied to SWMA contract
  • Level of discounting dependent upon time remaining on existing contract
  • Each level of discounting represented by unique SPCN

The following chart shows the direct customer discounts for SWMA and qualifying criteria based on the time left in the customer's existing Enhanced AIX Operating System Subscription contracts:

Contract time       Processor group     Processor group
remaining           D5, E5, F5          G5, H5, P5
 
25 -- 35 months     45% (SPCN 00110)    30% (SPCN 24312)
13 -- 24 months     25% (SPCN 00111)    15% (SPCN 00112)
 2 -- 12 months     10% (SPCN 24343)     5% (SPCN 00113)

To request notification or shipment of upgrades

Customers can request information regarding upgrades or updates of particular products via the Web.

To register to be notified by e-mail of product upgrades and updates, visit:

  • Select pSeries Software Maintenance.
  • Click on "sign in first."
  • Use your IBM Common Registration userid/password to sign in or click register to create one.
  • Under the heading subscribe/unsubscribe , you can select to be notified for all updates or specific ones.

After receipt of upgrade or update notification, eligible customers who want to request an upgrade or update via the Web, should fill out an online shipment request form at:

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

SPO (5692-A5L): A 5692-A5L SPO is mandatory to ship program media and publications. The individual licensed program orders (for example, 5765-E61) are for registration and billing purposes only. No shipment occurs under these orders.

To receive shipment on a CD-ROM requires an SPO (5692-A5L). Billing for the media type selected is generated under the SPO. To prevent additional billing expenses, place only one SPO order per machine.

Select one of the following (5692-A5L) feature numbers for media and entitled publications.

Variable charges: The applicable processor-based OTC will be based on the group of the designated machine on which the program is licensed for use. If the program is designated to a processor in a group for which no charge is listed above, the charge of the next higher group listed applies. For movement to a machine in a higher group, an upgrade charge equal to the difference in the then-current charges between the two groups will apply. For movement to a machine in a lower group, there will be no adjustment or refund of charges paid.
