To be eligible for service, you must purchase a ServicePac within 30 days of the purchase of the machine type to which it applies. You must also register a ServicePac offering within 15 days of purchase by completing the ServicePac online registration at

  3. Higher level of response time objective
Terms and eligibility requirements

Service delivery method

IBM On-site Repair (IOR): Repair is performed at customer site. If the machine cannot be fixed with the help of IBM remote support, the repair activity is performed by an IBM representative at the customer's site.

Screening refers to the initial remote problem determination (PD) or problem source identification (PSI) activity on a customer's service request that is performed by technical support personnel. Typically this is the first technical activity performed after the service request has been entered into the call management system and the customer has been entitled. Call screening results in the creation of the initial action plan to resolve the service request.

ServicePac response time: Committed service means that IBM will guarantee that the affected machine will be restored to good working order within an average of 48 office hours from the time the problem is initially reported to IBM . The restoration of system readiness does not include installation or configuration of system and application software.

These ServicePac offerings do not cover the repair of damage to the machine caused by failure to provide a suitable environment as prescribed by IBM , accident, disaster, misuse, abuse, non-IBM modifications of the machine, attachment of non-IBM features, or by unauthorized service on the machine. IBM does not warrant the loss or corruption of data or programs.

The customer is responsible for the reconstruction of lost or corrupted programs.

Items classified as consumable supplies or accessories are not covered under this service offering.

To be eligible for service you must follow the registration instructions included in the registration e-mail received upon purchase and must successfully register the ServicePac offering.

Hours of coverage

Limitations with respect to replacements or to parts for upgrades: Products classified as consumable supplies, such as peripheral devices and accessories, such as external displays, are not covered by this service.

Repair parts and replacement machines, which may be furnished on an exchange basis, may not be new but will be in good working order. All replaced parts and machines become the property of IBM . Some parts of IBM machines are designated as customer replaceable units (CRUs), enabling you to replace these parts.

CRU information and replacement instructions are shipped with the IBM machine. They are also available upon request. You may be given the option of installing a CRU yourself or may request IBM to install it as part of this service. You must return all defective CRUs to IBM in accordance with the return instructions issued with the replacement CRU. Certain machines require machine code or licensed internal code (LIC), such as microcode or system code, to correctly function. For such machines, you are responsible for downloading designated machine code and LIC updates from an IBM web site or from other electronic media, and following the instructions that IBM provides.
