IPLA and Subscription and Support considerations

IPLA licenses can be transferred from one machine to another within, but not limited to an enterprise. You may aggregate the capacity for all the processors the product is operated on to achieve a more economic price. This will result in a single proof of entitlement (PoE). It is your responsibility to manage the distribution of Value Units within the limits of the entitlement of the product license.

Subscription and Support must cover the same capacity as the product license entitlement. Subscription and Support will be available in the country in which the agreement is made.

Charge metrics definitions

Value Unit

A Value Unit is a pricing charge metric for program license entitlements that is based upon the quantity of a specific designated measurement used for a given program. Each program has a designated measurement. The most commonly used designated measurement is a processor core. However, for select programs, there are other designated measurements such as users, client devices, and messages. The number of Value Unit entitlements required for a program depends on how the program is deployed in your environment and must be obtained from a Value Unit table. You must obtain a PoE for the calculated number of Value Unit entitlements for your implementation. The Value Unit entitlements are specific to a program and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with Value Unit entitlements of another program.

Processor (Value Unit)

A processor core is a functional unit within a computing device that interprets and executes instructions. A processor core consists of at least an instruction control unit and one or more arithmetic or logic unit. With multicore technology, each core is considered a processor. Not all processor cores require the same number of Value Unit entitlements. To calculate the number of Value Unit entitlements required, refer to the value unit table at

With full capacity licensing, a PoE must be acquired for the appropriate number of value units based on all activated processor cores available for use on the server.

The program's LI will be available for review on the IBM Software License Agreement Web site

Limited warranty applies: Yes

Warranty: IBM warrants that when the program is used in the specified operating environment, it will conform to its specifications. The warranty applies only to the unmodified portion of the program. IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of the program or that IBM will correct all program defects. You are responsible for the results obtained from the use of the program.

IBM provides you with access to IBM databases containing information on known program defects, defect corrections, restrictions, and bypasses at no additional charge. Consult the IBM Software Support Guide for further information at

IBM will maintain this information for at least one year after the original licensee acquires the program (warranty period).

Money-back guarantee: If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the program and you are the original licensee, you may obtain a refund of the amount you paid for it, if within 30 days of your invoice date you return the program and its PoE to the party from whom you obtained it. If you downloaded the program, you may contact the party from whom you acquired it for instructions on how to obtain the refund.

  • For programs acquired under any of IBM's On/Off CoD software offerings, this term does not apply since these offerings apply to programs already acquired and in use by you.

Authorization for use on home/portable computer: No. The program may be stored on the primary machine and another machine, provided that the program is not in active use on both machines at the same time. You may not copy and use this program on another computer without paying additional license fees.

Usage restriction: Yes

DB2 Toolkit for Multiplatforms

  • Charges for this program are based on the total number of processors from which the data being processed by the program originates, including any processors available to the database servers on which the data originally resides, and the processors available to the database servers to which the program is licensed. The total number of processors within database servers on which the data being processed by the program resides and which are attached or available to the program may not exceed the number authorized by the applicable PoE or authorized by each product authorization acquired under Passport Advantage. If the total number exceeds the quantity in your PoE or exceeds your product authorizations acquired under Passport Advantage, you must notify IBM or its reseller as stated in the IPLA.
  • High availability/failover licensing
    • After the server is fully licensed, it can be used to service user workload. In high availability configurations, this server is called a Primary server; additional servers acting as backups are called Standby servers that may be deployed in Active or Idle configurations.
    • In Active Standby or Idle Standby, you must acquire a correct number of processor PoEs in addition to the processor PoEs you obtained for the Primary server.
    • Active Standby
      • In an Active Standby configuration, the program is operational on all servers to service user transactions or queries. Because each of the Active Standby servers is used to operate the program for user transactions or queries before and after a failure, the program must be fully licensed on all Active Servers.
      • In Active Standby, You must license the program for the number of processors attached or available to the Active Standby servers. For example, consider an environment with two servers, one Primary server with four processors and one Active Standby server with two processors. This environment must be licensed for six processors (four for the Primary server and two for the Active Standby server).
    • Idle Standby
      • In Idle Standby configuration, Idle Standby servers have the program installed, however, they do not have the program operational to service user transactions or query workloads. A server is considered "idle" if it is used exclusively for administrative actions that assist in failover scenarios such as having a database in rollforward pending state to support log shipping, or in making a flash copy of a DB2 database and then performing a database backup of this copy on another server, or in keeping a standby database synchronized using the High Availability Disaster Recovery (HADR) component.
      • In Idle Standby, you must license the program for one processor per Idle Standby server only, regardless of the number of processors attached or available to the server. For example, consider an environment with two servers, one Primary server with four processors and one Idle Standby server with two processors. This environment must be licensed for five processors (four for the Primary server and one for the Idle Standby server).

For additional information refer to the LI Document that is available on the IBM Software License Agreement Web site

Passport Advantage applies: Yes

Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance: The following agreement applies for maintenance and does not require customer signatures:


    IBM Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance (Z125-6011)

These products are licensed under the IPLA, and the associated Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance, which provide for support with ongoing access to releases and versions of the program.

IBM includes one year of Software Maintenance with the initial license acquisition of each program acquired. The initial period of Software Maintenance can be extended by the purchase of a renewal option, if available.

These programs have a one-time license charge for use of the program and an annual renewable charge for the enhanced support that includes telephone assistance (voice support for defects during normal business hours), as well as access to updates, releases, and versions of the program as long as support is in effect.

S/390® and zSeries® IBM Operational Support Services — SoftwareXcel is an option if you desire added services.

Volume orders (IVO): No

IBM operational support services — SoftwareXcel: No

System i™ Software Maintenance applies: No

Educational allowance available: Not applicable

On/Off CoD

To be eligible for On/Off CoD pricing, customers must be enabled for temporary capacity on the corresponding hardware, and the required contract — Z125-6907, Amendment for iSeries™ and pSeries® Temporary Capacity On Demand — Software — must be signed prior to use.

IBM Electronic Services

IBM has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to help you achieve higher system availability. Electronic Services is a Web-enabled solution that offers an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available for IBM servers. These services are designed to provide the opportunity for greater system availability with faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. Electronic Services comprises two separate, but complementary, elements: Electronic Services news page and Electronic Services Agent.

The Electronic Services news page is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The Electronic Service Agent™ is no-additional-charge software that resides on your server. It monitors events and transmits system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, client-defined timetable. The Electronic Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to deliver proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent is made available to IBM service support representatives when they help answer your questions or diagnose problems. Installation and use of IBM Electronic Service Agent for problem reporting enables IBM to provide better support and service for your IBM server.
