Overview

Effective May 2, 2006, and July 28, 2006, IBM will withdraw from marketing selected programs and program features licensed under the IBM International Program License Agreement.

Effective April 30, 2007, IBM will withdraw support currently being provided under the Software Maintenance Agreement or an IBM Global Services contract for OS/400® V5R2 and a set of programs running within the OS/400 V5R2 environment. Support for these additional programs within other i5/OS™ version release modification environments is unaffected by this announcement.

Refer to the Description section for details.

To support the 9405-520 Express Edition prepackaged concept, effective January 31, 2006, the configurator withdrew the ability to change the Express Edition by upgrading the initial one year of Software Maintenance coverage to three years (5733-SPE). As always, IBM highly recommends our sales teams include ongoing hardware maintenance and software maintenance through a single IBM Global Services, ServiceElite, contract as part of every 9405-520 Express Edition proposal.

Replacement product information: Software Maintenance 3-Year Registration for 5733-UX3 and 5733-SP3 is replaced by Software Maintenance (SWMA) for OS/400, i5/OS, and selected products offered through an IBM Global Services' ServiceElite contract.
