HACMP for AIX 5L helps provide availability of applications needed to support your On Demand Business. HACMP V5.4 continues to demonstrate IBM's cluster technology leadership, with new features to make the product even simpler, faster, and more flexible to integrate into IBM or third-party application environments. HACMP "goes the distance" by including new AIX 5L geographic mirroring support for remotely located cluster configurations.
HACMP provides base services for cluster node membership, system management, configuration integrity and control, and failover and recovery for applications. HACMP clusters with both nonconcurrent and concurrent access can contain up to 32 nodes. A node is an AIX 5L operating system image, and it may be a System p or System i server, an RS/6000® server or SP node, or an LPAR of an applicable System p or System i system.
Easy-to-use status and monitoring facilities are included. Scalability provides these capabilities across entire clusters and allows customers to define their own HACMP events and monitor their applications. HACMP V5 fully supports administration of AIX 5L Enhanced Concurrent Mode, thus providing concurrent shared-access management for all supported disk subsystems.
HACMP provides ease-of-use features to speed configuration of your cluster for a variety of application environments. Whether your objective for availability is at the storage level (such as ESS or SVC), volume group or logical volume level (such as LVM), clustered file system level (such as with GPFS), the application level (such as DB2, Oracle, or WebSphere), or the site level (such as to support disaster recovery), HACMP has features and options to assist you with successful integration into your environment. After your cluster is configured, the changes are synchronized accurately across all nodes and the cluster can be monitored easily with methods appropriate to your environment.
The optional HACMP/XD and HACMP Smart Assist features provide additional automated data backup, disaster recovery, and database environment configuration assistance to help protect your business, and are described in following sections.
All of the facilities of HACMP are available for and with IBM's System p Capacity on Demand (CoD), On/Off CoD, and Capacity Backup (CBU) offerings. This enables you to configure clusters that are scalable and to easily expand clusters' CPU and memory capacity as the need arises, without having to pay upfront for hardware that is not yet used.
Highlights of Version 5.4
HACMP V5.4 includes enhancements that improve ease of use, performance, and geographic distance capabilities.
New features that make HACMP V5 simpler:
WebSmit enables Web-based cluster management for configuring, monitoring, and managing clusters from the same management console. You can now view multiple clusters from one single, consistent interface. You can also view the cluster configuration and status simultaneously.
Resource group management utility improvements
Enhancements make it easier for you to move resource groups for cluster management, and to maintain previously configured behavior for a resource group, including priority override handling.
The cluster verification functionality, which validates your preproduction cluster environment, is upgraded to include a number of customer-requested enhancements. Automated nightly cluster verification reduces the risk that a change to the cluster may interfere with future cluster operation or failover.
Enhancements for Smart Assists:
- HACMP Application Integration provides a common infrastructure that can be used by all Smart Assists, as well as by the Cluster Test Tool. This enables a more rapid and consistent deployment of future Smart Assists.
- Oracle Smart Assist was enhanced to self-configure HACMP to monitor the entire Oracle process stack, including the Oracle Listener, and provide failover capabilities for the Oracle database.
- Discovery of DB2 and WebSphere components is performed automatically by the HACMP Smart Assist software and is no longer a separate step in the process.
- A General Application Smart Assist is provided to help developers more easily construct Smart Assists of their own (applications other than the three that have their own Smart Assists). This program is similar to the 2-Node Configuration Assistant, but is not limited to two nodes. A Smart Assist Developer's Guide is also provided; this includes a sample program for a Smart Assist and information on using the Smart Assist Framework and API.
GPFS 2.3 integration
Basic integration of HACMP with GPFS 2.3 provides improved file system management.
New features that make HACMP V5 faster:
Nondisruptive startup and upgrade
Moving applications into a highly available environment with HACMP is now even easier through the power of nondisruptive installation, configuration, and upgrade. HACMP 5.4 no longer requires a system shutdown after installation, and you may apply HACMP service and upgrades without disrupting production applications. The "Forced down handling" feature of HACMP V5.4 provides a building block for nondisruptive upgrades of HACMP.
Fast Failure Detection on node failure
This facility gives you option for even higher availability and less downtime by quicker recognition of node halt events by integrating with AIX® 5L halt command. Node failures are realized among the nodes in the cluster within one missed heartbeat period. This method requires that you configure a disk heartbeating network.
New features that enhance geographic distance capability
Metro Mirror enhancements
You can now integrate the disaster recovery functionality of HACMP/XD into your two-site cluster, utilizing the data mirroring functions resident within DS8000, DS6000, and ESS800 storage devices. Support is also now provided for intermixed environments.
IP Address Failover on Geographic Networks
This feature enables you to manage and move network communications between disparate sites, allowing you to takeover IP workloads at backup site locations.
HACMP/XD GLVM Multi-Link
GLVM now supports up to four networks, providing improved protection for data mirroring and allowing replication to continue in the event of a network failure. You can take advantage of higher aggregate network bandwidth using this feature where more than one network is available, thus improving mirroring performance across sites.
HACMP/XD GLVM Concurrent mode access
Concurrent application access in a disaster recovery environment is now available through HACMP/XD GLVM, allowing multiple node application processing within a production site, while still being able to back up to a secondary site.
Optional HACMP/XD feature for ESS, DS, and SVC Metro Mirror, geographic LVMs, and IP-based mirroring configurations
This optional feature of HACMP V5 offers, in one package, multiple technologies for achieving long distance data mirror, failover, and resynchronization:
- HACMP/XD GLVM is an IP-based mirroring technology. HACMP/XD GLVM data replication is built upon the AIX 5L Logical Volume Manager (LVM), using it to drive replication and synchronization of AIX 5L logical volumes. For additional information regarding GLVM, refer to Software Announcement 205-085 , dated March 15, 2005.
- HACMP/XD supports ESS, IBM TotalStorage, and SVC Metro Mirror (formerly known as Peer-to-Peer Remote Copy (PPRC)), providing automatic failover of disks that are configured as PPRC pairs, creating a powerful disaster recovery solution for customers on ESS, DS8000, or SVC. HACMP/XD automates the management of Metro Mirror, minimizes recovery time after an outage, and monitors your clustered environment to ensure mirroring of critical data is maintained at all times.
- HACMP/XD IP-based mirroring provides the well-known unlimited distance data mirroring of the former IBM HAGEO product. HACMP/XD delivers a fully integrated copy of HAGEO V2.4, allowing a cluster of System p computers to be placed in two widely separated geographic locations, each maintaining an exact replica of the application and data.
Data synchronization during production, failover, recovery, and restoration is provided.
Optional HACMP Smart Assist feature
HACMP V5 offers four HACMP Smart Assist applications to help you easily integrate these applications into an HACMP cluster:
- Smart Assist for DB2 extends an existing HACMP configuration to include monitoring and recovery support for DB2 Universal Database® (UDB) Enterprise Server Edition.
- Smart Assist for Oracle provides assistance for installing the Oracle Application Server 10g (9.0.4) (AS10g) Cold Failover Cluster solution on the AIX 5L operating system.
- Smart Assist for WebSphere has been updated and improved for HACMP 5.4. It extends an existing HACMP configuration to include monitoring and recovery support for various WebSphere components, including WebSphere Application Servers and WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment (Deployment Manager). Smart Assist for WebSphere now has a SMIT user interface with options to quickly configure different types of typical cluster configurations.
- A new General Application Smart Assist is provided for quicker configuration of your application with HACMP (applications other than the three that have their own Smart Assists). This program is similar to the 2-Node Configuration Assistant, but is not limited to two nodes. A Smart Assist Developer's Guide is also provided; this includes a sample program for a Smart Assist and information on using the Smart Assist Framework and API.
HACMP and Smart Assist increase the availability of a database solution by:
- Monitoring the Deployment Manager and automatically restarting it on backup servers
- Monitoring critical services (such as a TDS server) and automatically restarting them on backup servers if they fail
- Ensuring that all necessary system resources (for example, storage devices and IP addresses) are configured and made available on backup servers in support of application migration

HACMP is the solution for the estimated 80% of application downtime that is not caused by processor failures.
The prospective customer for HACMP solutions is any enterprise with requirements to keep business-critical applications and systems operational 7 days per week, 24 hours per day. An HACMP solution helps you avoid downtime; enables prompt recovery from any hardware, network, and application failures; and also gives you the means to take down an individual server (node) for planned maintenance and upgrades without having to take down the entire cluster.
High availability is a growing business need across all industries. The following industries are prime opportunities for HACMP solutions:
- Finance/Banking: Nearly 100% require high availability; federal regulations mandate backup sites.
- Retail (including online and catalog sales): Back-end office operations and business intelligence operations.
- Healthcare/Insurance: Data mining, data warehousing, and claimant data.
- Telco/Utilities/Media: Continuous operation of networks and switching equipment.
- Distribution/Process: Round-the-clock operation; just-in-time delivery.
- Manufacturing: Continuous access to operational/plant logistics data.
- Education: Administration data and central data mirroring/backup.
HACMP opportunities exist in these industries for the following applications:
- Enterprise Resource Planning
- Network computing
- Business intelligence
- Any customer application that utilizes any combination of disks and networks
The HACMP/XD feature is a must for customers with business-critical data who want to mirror data between separate sites to aid in disaster recovery. This applies to businesses of any size, with multiple sites or regional operations, or wherever decentralization of data is desired.
HACMP is an attractive, affordable high availability solution for small and medium-sized enterprises, and for small and medium-sized business units of large enterprises. High availability should be a fundamental buying criterion for business-critical and on demand applications.
In addition to providing high availability, HACMP 5.4.0 can also be configured to provide loosely coupled multiprocessing services. These configurations allow workload to be spread across multiple System p servers, sharing the disk and processor resources of the clustered nodes. This clustered approach, along with the capability of application failover and recovery/restart of the HACMP 5.3 configured machine, offers additional levels of high availability processing for customer-critical environments. The Concurrent Resource Manager function of HACMP 5.4.0 provides an open API that applications can utilize to get concurrent access to a shared disk.
Positioning HACMP and other cluster servers: HACMP is a robust offering for mission-critical availability for up to 32 nodes. It is IBM's strategic high availability offering designed and tuned for System p servers running AIX 5L. Advantages of HACMP relative to competitive products:
- HACMP provides a broad range of configuration options over all platforms, including a greater number of nodes (32), node interconnect protocols, storage systems, and disk interconnects, allowing increased flexibility of configurations.

HACMP V5 product description and key features
HACMP clusters can be configured to meet complicated application availability and recovery needs. HACMP configurations can include mutual takeover or standby takeover recovery processes. Mutual takeover configurations allow all servers to be active information processors and to perform as backup servers for failed servers. A standby configuration designates a server to be an idle or passive backup for a failed server in the cluster.
HACMP can be tailored to specify which server in the cluster will take over the application of the failed server and to specify which application has priority on the takeover server. HACMP recovery processes also allow you to specify which server the application should be assigned to, or reassigned to, after recovery, resynchronization, and reintegration of the failed server into the cluster. This provides greater flexibility for maintaining availability.
With an HACMP mutual takeover configuration, applications and their workloads are assigned to specific servers. For example, in a two-node HACMP cluster, one server may be designated to be the application server and the second server may be designated to be a database server. Segmenting the application processing to one server and the database processing to the second server utilizes both servers in a productive manner and maximizes application throughput and investments in hardware and software.
In addition to providing high availability, HACMP 5.4.0 can also be configured to provide loosely coupled multiprocessing services. These configurations allow workload to be spread across multiple System p systems, sharing the disk and processor resources of the clustered nodes. This clustered approach, along with the capability of application failover and recovery/restart of the HACMP configured machine, offers additional levels of high availability processing for customer-critical environments.
HACMP software is scalable to address a broad range of business-critical, high availability application needs. With HACMP, two to 32 servers may be configured for high availability. HACMP offers built-in growth and helps protect investments in cluster hardware, software, services, and training.
HACMP provides a rich set of leadership system management tools to reduce cluster configuration and administration time. These tools include:
- Cluster Single Point-of-Control (C-SPOC)
- AIX 5L System Management Interface Tool (SMIT)
- A command-line interface
- 2-Node Configuration Assistant
- Cluster Test Tool
- Cluster Definition File
Enhanced manageability for clustered systems is available through a Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) client or through Tivoli® NetView® for AIX 5L.
Administration of single and multiple clusters is enhanced through Cluster Snapshots, HACMP File Collections, Event Summaries, and Event Emulation. These tools allow system managers and application developers to easily configure, replicate, test, and manage IBM System high availability clusters.
Nondisruptive hardware and software upgrades can be performed with HACMP. The cluster configuration can be expanded or modified without service disruption through Dynamic Reconfiguration options. Version compatibility and Dynamic Reconfiguration eliminate the most common causes of scheduled cluster downtime.
Data can be processed concurrently when using Oracle Parallel Server (OPS), RAC, or Database 10g. The combination of HACMP and OPS offers an additional level of high availability. With HACMP and OPS, all servers in the cluster share the data and system resources; if one or more servers should fail, the remaining servers continue processing with minimal disruption, if any, because no failover is required. An added benefit of HACMP and OPS is a performance improvement, because all database processing is done in a parallel manner.
Breadth of hardware support
High availability is provided across the System p and System i server lines, extending from entry-level deskside servers to the largest enterprise-class servers. Supported disk subsystems include:
- Fibre Channel-attached disk subsystems
- Serial Storage Architecture, scalable to terabytes of data storage
HACMP also gives you the ability to "mix and match" processor and disk subsystem technologies to meet processing needs. System p servers and symmetric multiprocessors, System i servers, LPARs on applicable servers, and SP nodes can have membership in the same HACMP cluster.
Extensive networking support
Extensive configuration flexibility supports a variety of networks, including:
- Token ring
- ATM LAN Emulation
- SP Switches
Comprehensive heartbeat capability
TCP/IP, serial, SSA, SCSI, disk, and IP alias heartbeat transmission paths are available. Multiple heartbeat paths let you reliably differentiate network, node, and adapter failures to eliminate potential false takeovers and their impacts.
- Extensive data backup and recovery options

Capacity on Demand
HACMP supports IBM System p Capacity on Demand (CoD) and Capacity Backup (CBU). CoD enables you to dynamically add processors to a cluster. On/Off Capacity on Demand (On/Off CoD) enables you to purchase additional daily license entitlements for HACMP and add additional temporary processors to an HACMP cluster. When needed, HACMP can activate CoD, Dynamic LPAR (DLPAR), and CBU resources. HACMP/XD can manage local or IP-based data mirroring synchronization of data at POWER4 and POWER5 CBU processors during failover, as well as resynchronization of data at the primary processor upon restoration.
HACMP and RAS
Reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS) are implemented on all enterprise-class System p, System i, and Cluster 1600 servers:
- Error detection
- Fault tolerance
- Reliable hardware components
- High availability
- Fault-management software
- Concurrent or online diagnostics
HACMP complements these technologies with additional high availability management for your applications and for continuous operation during planned maintenance.
High Availability Control Workstation (HACWS)
For cluster customers using PSSP, there is an existing feature called HACWS. HACWS is a two-node HACMP application. This application improves the reliability, availability, and serviceability of an SP system by providing a backup control workstation. Automatic failover and reintegration to the backup control workstation are provided should the primary control workstation fail or if there is a need to take the primary control workstation down to perform hardware and software maintenance.

Any supported server can be joined with any other supported server in an HACMP V5 configuration. Models with fewer than three slots can be used in the HACMP V5 server configuration, but due to slot limitations, a single-point-of-failure is unavoidable in shared-disk or shared-network resources.
HACMP V5.3 and V5.4 support concurrent access configuration with all supported external storage systems.
Certain non-IBM RAID systems can operate in concurrent I/O access environments. IBM will not accept APARs if the non-IBM RAID offerings do not work properly with HACMP V5.
The minimum configuration of each machine is highly dependent on the user's database package and other applications.
Actual configuration requirements are highly localized according to the required function and performance needs of individual sites. In configuring a cluster, particular attention must be paid to:
- Fixed-disk capacity and mirroring (Logical Volume Manager and database)
- Slot limitations and their effect on creating a single point-of-failure
- Client access to the cluster
- Other LAN devices (such as routers and bridges) and their effect on the cluster
- Replication of I/O adapters and subsystems
- Replication of power supplies
- Other network software
Whenever a process takes over resources after a failure, consideration must be given to work partitioning. For example, if node A is expected to take over for failed node B and continue to perform its original duties, A must be configured with enough resources to perform the work of both.
HACMP V5.3 and V5.4 device support
HACMP supports client users on a LAN using TCP/IP. HACMP monitors and performs IP address switching for the following TCP/IP-based communications adapters on cluster nodes:
- Token ring

Compatibility: HACMP V5.4 supports dynamic upgrade from HACMP 5.1, 5.2, and 5.3, and static upgrades from all prior versions:
- A dynamic upgrade from HACMP V5.1, V5.2, or V5.3 involves installing HACMP V5.4 on all nodes in the cluster; however, the Version Compatibility function allows you to upgrade the cluster one node at a time, without taking the entire cluster offline. Configuration data is retained.
- A static upgrade from HACMP/6000 V1.2, V2.1, V3.1, V4.1, V4.2, V4.3, V4.4.0, V4.4.1, or V4.5, to HACMP V5.4 involves reinstalling HACMP on all nodes in the cluster at the same time. This means that at some point, the cluster must be brought down; however, with proper planning the downtime can be minimized. Configuration is not retained for HACMP releases prior to V4.5.
Note: Although different releases of HACMP V5 can coexist in a cluster temporarily, the Version Compatibility function is intended to ease migration from prior releases of HACMP V5 and is not intended to provide long-term compatibility between versions of the product in a cluster.
Limitations: HACMP provides high availability for the applications and resources executing on the nodes in the HACMP cluster. HACMP does not provide availability beyond the realm of the defined cluster configuration. A high availability implementation requires that there be no single points-of-failures (for example, primary and backup HACMPs in LPAR partitions within a single server frame).
Specific limitations of HACMP
HACMP supports clusters of up to 64 resource groups and 256 interfaces across up to 32 AIX 5L/HACMP
images (System p or System i servers, SP nodes, RS/6000 systems, or LPARs).
The following networks are not supported:
- Serial Optical Channel Converter
- Fibre Channel Switch
- Virtual IP Address facility of AIX 5L
- IP V6
HACMP Support for CUoD, CBU, and DLPAR:
HACMP can be run in LPARs to which processors or memory are added through CUoD or DLPAR (refer to Hardware Announcement 102-260 , dated October 8, 2002) or CBU (refer to Hardware Announcement 103-286 , dated October 14, 2003).
Care must be taken to ensure that sufficient capacity and appropriate procedures are in place to support these features.
Adjusting the hardware configuration (adding or removing processors or memory) of an HACMP node will, under many circumstances, put a significant additional temporary load on that system. This can cause HACMP to interpret that system as having failed. HACMP does not currently have a supported mechanism that will automatically deal with this in all cases. Customers who want to take advantage of these features should run tests and perform adequate benchmarking of their environments to determine the timing implications under varying workload conditions. IBM is not responsible for failures due to incorrect settings of these values, as these tuning parameters are unique for every customer environment.
When installing HACMP on a system with Trusted Computing Base (TCB) security in place, special
considerations are required. HACMP will modify some system files that are monitored by TCB. This
will cause errors to be reported by TCB. The error messages may not identify HACMP as the origin of
the changes to the monitored files. While this does will not affect the operation of HACMP, TCB, or
of the AIX 5L system, customers should verify that the messages are indeed caused only by the
installation of HACMP. If that verification is successful, then no further action is required (the
tcbck command should not be used to undo the HACMP changes). Otherwise, normal security procedures
should be followed.
The Fast Failure Detection function is supported on all supported disk types except SSA.
- HACMP updates SNMP during installation.
Specific limitations of HACMP/XD
- Only one Metro Mirror-supported Storage Server is supported at each site.
- HACMP/XD support does not include Global Mirror functions of SVC Copy Services.
- PPRC eRCMF supports up to eight Enterprise Storage Servers, with a maximum of four at each site.
- Concurrent disk access within HACMP/XD GLVM is supported only within sites, not between sites.
- A single HACMP/XD cluster supports only two sites. A single node can be part of only one HACMP/XD cluster site.
- A single HACMP/XD cluster supports up to eight nodes.
Specific limitations of HACMP Smart Assist
- Smart Assist for DB2 cannot be used to configure a cluster in a partitioned (DB2 UDB DPF) environment.
- When protecting WebSphere Application Servers, only environments using Network Deployment (that is, using Deployment Manager) will be configured into HACMP by the WebSphere Smart Assist.
- The default configuration created for the WebSphere components assumes an unloaded standby system is available, with enough resources to assume the workload of the active system.
- A single standby system may be configured to protect multiple workloads, but is assumed to only effectively execute one workload at a time. The default configuration can be subsequently modified to meet installation-specific requirements.
- For WebSphere configurations using an IBM HTTP Server (IHS) with application servers, Smart Assist will automatically configure the IHS to failover with the application server. This will require the administrator to place the IHS data on a shareable volume group accessible by both nodes.
- Because of the new common Smart Assist infrastructure, there is no migration path from the HACMP V5.3 Oracle Smart Assist to the V5.4 Oracle Smart Assist. HACMP resource groups and resources constructed with V5.3 Oracle Smart Assist are migrated, but you cannot use V5.4 to manage V5.3 Oracle Smart Assist instances.
Environmental conditions that affect the use of HACMP
- The time HACMP takes to recover from a failure depends, in part, on the amount of time it takes for AIX 5L to detect the failure. With the default network detections setting, some token-ring failures may require more than 60 seconds to be detected.
- HACMP does not support attached terminals using Local Area Transport-B protocols.
- Cluster nodes must be within the cable-length limitations of the shared disks, so the physical distance between nodes is limited by the total cable length of the shared disk cables.
- Transparency of a failure and the subsequent recovery to external users or clients is dependent on the HACMP configuration, the client system, and application protocol design.
- The AIX 5L Journaled File System (JFS and JFS2) does not support concurrent access from multiple nodes; therefore, storage accessed in a concurrent configuration must be in raw logical volumes or through GPFS.
- For systems running NetView or other programs that catch SNMP traps, refer to HACMP documentation for details on the use of the clinfo daemon with such programs.
- National Language Support is fully enabled in HACMP for AIX 5L; message translation is provided for Japanese, but other system components such as RSCT produce messages in English only.
For additional information refer to the Usage restrictions section of this announcement, or to the License Information document that is available on the IBM Software License Agreement Web site
Performance considerations: HACMP 5.4.0 cluster performance can be measured and reported in many ways. In a mutual takeover/partitioned workload cluster environment, the user's applications and data are spread across two to 32 nodes in a cluster. Data management and application management can be placed under the control of a single node for efficiency, or on each node for performance. In this partitioned environment, minimal interaction between nodes in a cluster derives high efficiency in each node. When a failover occurs and the backup node takes over for a failed node, performance is degraded for that period of time when the node is down.
In data sharing, LAN and file system overhead and data contention can reduce processor efficiency. Where data must be shared, the concurrent access configuration can be utilized, but less efficiently than a single system because distributed locks must be maintained between cluster nodes and processors.
Customer responsibilities: Customers who purchase two or more HACMP licenses may replicate the contents of the following file sets throughout their enterprise:
Installability: HACMP 5.4 includes conversion utilities to help you convert your configuration from earlier releases of HACMP without installing each intervening version.
All of these conversions can be done while your cluster is not operating; for information regarding node conversion while maintaining cluster operation, refer to the Compatibility section.
The following conversions are provided for converting existing configurations of HACMP V5 to V5.4:
- HACMP for AIX 5L, V5.1
- HACMP for AIX 5L, V5.2
- HACMP for AIX 5L, V5.3
HACMP 5.4 includes conversion utilities to help you migrate your configuration between products in the HACMP family.

The following applies to both HACMP V5.3 and HACMP V5.4:
HACMP V5, HACMP/XD, and HACMP Smart Assist are each server products that each have one charge unit: Number of processors. The number of processors for each product is the sum of the number of processors on which that product will be installed or run. A license is required for each machine on which HACMP will be installed and run.
Software Maintenance for HACMP V5 and its optional features (5660-HMP, 5661-HMP, 5662-HMP, 5663-HMP, or 5664-HMP), should be ordered individually in a quantity equal to the sum of the number of processors on which HACMP V5, HACMP/XD, or HACMP Smart Assist, respectively, will be installed and run.
The order quantity is the integer number of processors on which the product will be run or installed.
Note: Ordering and billing is per physical processor, regardless of processor sharing ("sub-CPU LPARs"). A processor shared among multiple partitions counts as one processor.

Warranty: This program includes a warranty for one year from acquisition from IBM or an authorized IBM Business Partner. For one year from acquisition of the program, this warranty provides the customer with access to databases containing program information and FAQs, including any known fixes to defects, which the customer can download or otherwise obtain and install.
Program technical support: Technical support of a program product will be available for a minimum of three years from the general availability date, as long as your Software Maintenance is in effect. This technical support allows you to obtain assistance (via telephone or electronic means) from IBM for product-specific, task-oriented questions regarding the installation and operation of the program product. Software Maintenance also provides you with access to updates, releases, and versions of the program. Customers will be notified, via announcement letter, of discontinuance of support with 12 months' notice. If you require additional technical support from IBM, including an extension of support beyond the discontinuance date, contact your IBM representative or IBM Business Partner. This extension may be available for a fee.
Money-back guarantee: If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the program and you are the original licensee, return it within 30 days from the invoice date to the party (either IBM or its reseller) from whom you acquired it for a refund. For clarification, note that for programs acquired under any of IBM's On/Off Capacity on Demand (On/Off CoD) software offerings, this term does not apply since these offerings apply to programs already acquired and in use by the customer.

Volume orders (IVO): Yes, contact your IBM representative.
Usage restriction: Yes

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, 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.
