Product/Features Requiring License Key for V5R4M0
Note: Starting with V5R3M0, the license keys are obtained electronically. The following notice is included with the software package:
Dear IBM Customer;
We have not shipped a printed Proof of Entitlement (PoE) document in the software package. Rather, an electronic Proof of Entitlement (ePoE) record was created that is available to you on the Web. This record can be printed for your records.
As a result of user feedback, we are implementing ePoE which we believe will result in improved and more efficient record keeping for user entitlements to use IBM software. The ePoE record is the official record of your entitlement and contains the following information: Product Name, Product Number, Product Option Number, Version, Install Code ID, Quantity, Proof Number, Customer Number, Machine type/serial (optional).
To access your ePoE, registration with IBM is required. Register at URL: http://www.ibm.com/account/registration/selfreg. With your registration, you can access the ePoE and software license key information at URL: http://www.ibm.com/eserver/ess. Your Customer Number and IBM Order Number (as specified on the Software Order Packing List provided with this software package) is required.
If this is an upgrade for this program, destroy the original IBM printed PoE for this software program. The ePoE record replaces it and is now the only record of your entitlement that IBM recognizes.
Program transfer capability is governed by the International Program License Agreement (IPLA) and License Information documentation shipped with this program. Refer to this documentation to understand your transfer rights and obligations. To transfer your program to another party outside of your Enterprise, contact the Software Key Center at the phone number provided at URL: http://www.ibm.com/eserver/ess .
If you are unable to access the Web sites or have questions on ePoE support, please contact the Software Key Center at: firstname.lastname@example.org ,
