Overview

Top rule

New feature conversions enable clients who have an existing IBM® Power® System E980 server without IBM Power Enterprise Pools 2.0 (Static or Mobile-enabled activations) or a system enabled for the initial Power Enterprise Pool with Mobile activations to make a miscellaneous equipment specification (MES) hardware change into a Power Enterprise Pools 2.0 environment by:

  • Upgrading their processor and memory activations from Static, Mobile-enabled, or Mobile-to-base activation features
  • Adding feature EP20 (Pools 2.0 enablement)
  • Purchasing initial capacity credits for use in a Pools 2.0 environment

Clients can only make an MES change into a Pools 2.0 environment from an existing Power E980 system. To ensure a smooth transition, clients with IBM Power System E870, E870C, E880, or E880C servers who want to enable a Pools 2.0 environment should first upgrade their servers to an Power E980 system. Then each of these systems can be transitioned to a Pools 2.0 environment with a subsequent MES order.

Clients in an existing Power Enterprise Pool (1.0) with Mobile activations should remove feature EH35 and the Pools enablement feature and replace them with Pools 2.0 enablement feature EP20. When feature EP20 is ordered, clients must also convert all of their existing Static, Mobile, and Mobile-enabled activations to corresponding base activation features.

Feature conversions

The existing components being replaced during a model or feature conversion become the property of IBM and must be returned.

Feature conversions are always implemented on a "quantity of one for quantity of one" basis. Multiple existing features may not be converted to a single new feature. Single existing features may not be converted to multiple new features.

The following conversions are available to customers:

Java™ is supported on IBM POWER9™ servers. For the best use of the performance capabilities and the most recent improvements of POWER9 technology, IBM recommends Java-based applications to Java 7, Java 8, or later, whenever possible. For those clients who want to run Java in AIX environments, see the AIX Download and service information website.

For Linux (including Linux on Power), see the Linux Download information website.

For those clients who want to run Java in IBM i environments, read the following planning statements:

  • Java 6 is not a supported environment for IBM i 7.3 and is no longer supported in IBM i 7.2.
  • For those clients who want to run Java on IBM i, see the Java on IBM i website.

IBM Electronic Services

Top rule

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.

To learn how Electronic Services can work for you, go to the IBM Electronic Service Agent website.
