Overview

Effective January 1, 1999, IBM will withdraw from marketing the Measured Usage License Charges feature numbers for the following programs licensed under the IBM Customer Agreement:

Program
Number         Program Name

5655-147 CICS (R) Trans. Server Version 1.2 5695-137 MQSeries (R) for MVS/ESA (TM) Version 1 5695-DB2 DATABASE 2 (TM) Version 4 5685-DB2 DATABASE 2 MVS (TM) Version 3 5655-DB2 DATABASE 2 for OS/390 (R) Version 5 5655-158 IMS/ESA (R) Version 6 5695-176 IMS (TM) Version 5 5655-018 CICS for MVS/ESA 5695-068 ALCS Version 2 5685-025 TSO/E Version 2

On supported current versions of IBM's major subsystems, Measured Usage License Charges (MULC) have been replaced by S/390 Usage Pricing for customers running OS/390 Version 2. Current MULC customers on S/390 (R) Usage Pricing supported versions who are running OS/390 Version 2 will be eligible to migrate to S/390 Usage Pricing at the time of their renewal for these eligible products. Refer to Software Announcement 298-357 dated September 29, 1998.

Customers who currently have MULC software licenses for which there is no S/390 Usage Pricing option, or customers with MULC licenses who are not running OS/390 Version 2, will continue to be eligible for Measured Usage License Charges on existing MULC licenses beyond January 1, 1999.

Effective January 1, 1999, the following changes are being made to the Attachment for Measured Usage License Charges (MULC), Z125-5192. This is being done to keep existing MULC billing periods in sync with the new S/390 Usage Pricing Charges.

  1. In Section 3 (Billing Periods), the billing period is changed from six to twelve months.

  2. In Section 3, for subsequent billing periods, the highest monthly measurement period as the basis for establishing charges, will be changed from the prior six to the prior twelve months.
