Tivoli Systems Support
Although the first year of support is included in the product price, a no-charge order must be placed using program number 5698-SPT specifying feature number 9001 for asset registration and the appropriate First Year Standard Support No-Charge feature number. This 5698-SPT order establishes entitlement records worldwide. If a 5698-SPT order is not placed, the customer will not be entitled to support even during the first year of a license.
Before the end of the first 12 months support period, customers will be notified of their support renewal options. Unless the customer notifies IBM/Tivoli to discontinue or alter the level of support currently being received, support will automatically be renewed for annual billing at the same level as selected in the first year. Once the subsequent year support feature numbers are in place, renewals are automatic and billed annually unless support is cancelled by the customer.
Tivoli Systems offers a variety of support options in response to diverse customer requirements. The table below summarizes these offerings.

During the first year of a license, the customer may upgrade to the Tivoli Standard-24 or Tivoli Select Support option by ordering the applicable OTC feature number from the table below. The OTC feature numbers may be specified on the initial order or later via an MES during the first year only. Ordering this OTC feature will not result in an extension of the no charge support period.
In subsequent years, if a customer wants to upgrade to the Tivoli Standard-24 or Tivoli Select Support option, an MES order must be entered to discontinue the existing support option feature number and to add the feature number for the desired options. After an MES order is entered, the support will be renewed and billed annually at that support level unless support is cancelled by the customer.

With Software Maintenance, you receive the following technical support benefits:
PA allows you to have a common anniversary date for Software Maintenance renewals, simplifying management and budgeting for eligible new versions and releases, (and for related technical support) for your covered products. The anniversary date, established at the start of your PA Agreement, recurs on an annual basis while your PA Agreement remains in effect. However, regardless of when Software Maintenance is acquired, the coverage period for Software Maintenance is always up to the anniversary date specified in the acquisition.
Software Maintenance renewals offer you favorable pricing to continue your coverage without interruption.
Refer to the IBM International PA Agreement and to the IBM Software Maintenance Handbook for specific terms relating to, and a more complete description of, technical support provided through Software Maintenance.
