  • Machine type 9846: One year
  • Machine type 9848: Three years

An IBM part or feature installed during the initial installation of an IBM machine is subject to a full warranty effective on the date of installation of the machine. An IBM part or feature that replaces a previously installed part or feature assumes the remainder of the warranty period for the replaced part or feature. An IBM part or feature added to a machine without replacing a previously installed part or feature is subject to a full warranty effective on its date of installation. Unless specified otherwise, the warranty period, type of warranty service, and service level of a part or feature are the same as those for the machine in which it is installed.

Extended warranty service: This product is provided with one year of standard warranty and an optional two additional years of extended warranty services to make these offerings. Customers should consult with their financial personnel on the appropriate financial treatment for this offering.

Warranty service

If required, IBM provides repair or exchange service depending on the types of warranty service specified for the machine. IBM will attempt to resolve your problem over the telephone, or electronically through an IBM website. Certain machines contain remote support capabilities for direct problem reporting, remote problem determination, and resolution with IBM. You must follow the problem determination and resolution procedures that IBM specifies. Following problem determination, if IBM determines on-site service is required, scheduling of service will depend upon the time of your call, machine technology and redundancy, and availability of parts. If applicable to your product, parts considered Customer Replaceable Units (CRUs) will be provided as part of the machine's standard warranty service.

Service levels are response-time objectives and are not guaranteed. The specified level of warranty service may not be available in all worldwide locations. Additional charges may apply outside IBM's normal service area. Contact your local IBM representative or your reseller for country-specific and location-specific information.

On-site Service

At IBM 's discretion, you will receive specified CRU service, or IBM will repair the failing machine at your location and verify its operation. You must provide a suitable working area to allow disassembly and reassembly of the IBM machine. The area must be clean, well-lit, and suitable for the purpose.

Service level is:

  • 24 hours per day, 7 days a week, 4 hour average, same day response.

Warranty service

IBM is now shipping machines with selected non-IBM parts that contain an IBM field replaceable unit (FRU) part number label. These parts are to be serviced during the IBM machine warranty period. IBM is covering the service on these selected non-IBM parts as an accommodation to their customers, and normal warranty service procedures for the IBM machine apply.

Maintenance service options

If required, IBM provides repair or exchange service depending on the types of maintenance service specified for the machine. IBM will attempt to resolve your problem over the telephone or electronically, via an IBM website. Certain machines contain remote support capabilities for direct problem reporting, remote problem determination, and resolution with IBM. You must follow the problem determination and resolution procedures that IBM specifies. Following problem determination, if IBM determines on-site service is required, scheduling of service will depend upon the time of your call, machine technology and redundancy, and availability of parts. Service levels are response-time objectives and are not guaranteed. The specified level of maintenance service may not be available in all worldwide locations. Additional charges may apply outside IBM's normal service area. Contact your local IBM representative or your reseller for country-specific and location-specific information. The following service selections are available as maintenance options for your machine type. To help improve problem determination efficiency, it is advised that the SMTP and call home service settings be configured on the IBM FlashSystem V9000.

On-site Service

IBM will repair the failing machine at your location and verify its operation. You must provide a suitable working area to allow disassembly and reassembly of the IBM machine. The area must be clean, well-lit, and suitable for the purpose.

Service levels are:

  • 9 hours per day, Monday through Friday, excluding holidays, next business day response. Calls must be received by 5:00 pm local time in order to qualify for next business day response
  • 9 hours per day, Monday through Friday, excluding holidays, 4 hour average, same business day response
  • 24 hours per day, 7 days a week, same day response
  • 24 hours per day, 7 days a week, 2 hour average response, same day
Non-IBM parts service

Under certain conditions, IBM provides services for selected non-IBM parts at no additional charge for machines that are covered under warranty service upgrades or maintenance services.

This service includes hardware problem determination (PD) on the non-IBM parts (for example, adapter cards, PCMCIA cards, disk drives, memory) installed within IBM machines and provides the labor to replace the failing parts at no additional charge.

If IBM has a Technical Service Agreement with the manufacturer of the failing part, or if the failing part is an accommodations part (a part with an IBM FRU label), IBM may also source and replace the failing part at no additional charge. For all other non-IBM parts, customers are responsible for sourcing the parts. Installation labor is provided at no additional charge, if the machine is covered under a warranty service upgrade or a maintenance service.


Enterprise class support

IBM FlashSystem V9000 Control Enclosure (9848- AC3) and IBM FlashSystem V9000 SFF Expansion Enclosure (9848-24F) include Enterprise Class Support as defined below. This applies to the supported Enterprise Class Support offerings that include 3-year warranty options.

In addition, the previously announced IBM FlashSystem V9000 Control Enclosure (9848-AC2), IBM FlashSystem V9000 Storage Enclosure (9848-AE2), IBM FlashSystem V9000 LFF Expansion Enclosure (9848-12F), IBM FlashSystem A9000 (9838-415) and IBM FlashSystem A9000R (9837-415) that are purchased after August 23, 2016, will also assume the following Enterprise Class Support terms. This applies to the supported Enterprise Class Support offerings that include 3-year warranty options.

  • Technical Advisors to proactively improve problem management and communication
  • Software installation
  • Configuration support
  • On-site and remote software updates up to six times during the warranty period
  • Enhanced response times for high severity problems

During the warranty period and with a current active software maintenance agreement, the client will be entitled to enhanced response times for Severity 1 problems. IBM will also provide an IBM System Service Representative (SSR) to perform on-site product setup and installation. In addition, the IBM SSR or IBM Remote Support Center will perform up to six software updates during the warranty period.

IBM Technical Advisor support will be provided during the warranty period. This support enhances end-to-end support for the client's complex IT solutions. The Technical Advisor uses an integrated approach for coordinated, cross-team support to enable clients to maximize IT availability. The Technical Advisor will work with clients, sales teams, and Business Partners to ensure the Technical Delivery Assessment checklist and site planning steps are complete. Additionally, with the three-year warranty, the Technical Advisor will pro-actively plan the software updates and ensure workstation, network access, user ID, and software download steps are completed prior to deploying the SSR or IBM Remote Support Center to perform the software update.
