Please reference the Quick Start Guide.


Limited Defect Support:

CP3KEXTR is an “as is” program; defect support is not provided via the normal IBM support structure. Instead, report problems via email to

Defect support will not be staffed on a 24 x 7 basis. Responses to defect inquiries will be made on a best effort basis but generally should be expected within 48 hours.
