Paying for an upgrade to V5

If I own V4 do I have to pay to upgrade to V5?

It all depends on your license agreement with IBM. Most systems sold within the last 3-4 years have what's termed "Software Subscription". What that means is that as long as you are paying your yearly fees for the service, the upgrade is provided within the service. If you don't have Software Subscription, you would probably have to pay for an upgrade. Contact your IBM representative and they can tell you. If you don't know your IBM Rep, e-mail me with your IBM Customer Number and your System Serial number and I will find out for you.
