What does my Software Maintenance cover and what are the implications if I don't renew?
Customers must purchase Software Maintenance (also known as Subscription and Support) in order to be entitled to upgrades and/or new versions or releases, as well as telephone support.
Customers who allow their current subscription to expire must either re-licence the software (i.e. purchase as new) or pay a resumption or re-instatement fee so that they can receive an upgrade to a new version or release.
What are the implications if I don't purchase software maintenance when I purchase my system software license or I want to renew lapsed software maintenance?
An "After License Fee" or a "Resumption Fee" must be paid to reinstate maintenance coverage when a customer
a) chooses not to order IBM Software maintenance at time of initial purchase; or
b) allows software maintenance to lapse; or
c) fails to submit the renewal request to IBM on or before the renewal date (renewal request must be received by IBM on or before the renewal date).
