HP e3000 Hardware Upgrade and Software Right to Use Licensing policy information

Does the HP e3000 Hardware Upgrade and Software Right to Use (RTU) Licensing Policy and new AD377A product offering affect you?

This policy applies if you are planning to perform a hardware upgrade upgrade or replace a lost MPE/iX RTU license on your HP e3000 systems. Since the HP e3000 ended sales for systems, add-on components, and upgrade kits in 2004, customers who want to upgrade their existing e3000 systems have begun asking HP for guidelines on how they can ensure that their upgraded systems are meeting HP's MPE/iX Right to Use (RTU) license and e3000 hardware upgrade requirements. . There have also been requests for a process to replace a lost MPE/iX RTU license in the case where an HP e3000 system has no documented history, such as a PO, invoice, or a support contract

As a result of these requests, a Hardware Upgrade and Software RTU Licensing Policy Statement has been generated to clarify possible confusion in the marketplace. We have also created a stand-alone MPE/iX RTU license product (AD377A) that is not coupled with any secondary hardware system sales. With these two deliverables, HP hopes to make the HP e3000 hardware upgrade and software RTU licensing process clearer and more manageable.

If you are planning to perform any upgrades or RTU license replacement to your existing e3000 systems, please read the following communications to gain a solid understanding of HP's requirements:

» HP e3000 Hardware Upgrade and Software RTU Licensing policy statement
» Supported HP e3000 hardware upgrade paths
» MPE/iX Right to Use license (AD377A) information sheet
» HP e3000 Right to Use license levels for AD377A matrix
» HP e3000 chassis product number identification matrices
» HP e3000 Hardware Upgrade and Software RTU Licensing Policy FAQs

As always, if you have any additional questions about your hardware upgrade or RTU license replacement, please submit your question by clicking the "Contact HP with e3000 Questions" on the http://www.hp.com/go/e3000 home page.
