Support lifecycle notice for AIX 6.1 Technology Levels 1 and 2

IBM announces the following schedules to help you plan for future upgrades to your AIX operating system. These plans are subject to change without notice.

AIX Technology Levels are supported for how to, usage, and problem identification for the entire life of the release. However, all Technology Levels have a limited support window for corrective service. If a fix is needed, you may be required to upgrade to a more current Technology Level to receive generally available fixes or interim fixes. IBM recommends you take a moment to verify your current service level. Simply run the 'oslevel -r' command.

AIX 6.1 Technology Level 1 (6100-01)

After May 2010, IBM will no longer provide generally available fixes or interim fixes for systems at AIX 6100-01. This applies to all Service Packs within TL1. Please plan to upgrade to a newer Technology Level at your earliest convenience.

AIX 6.1 Technology Level 2 (6100-02)

Sometime after October 1, 2010, IBM will no longer provide generally available fixes or interim fixes for systems at AIX 6100-02. This applies to all Service Packs within TL2. The exact date for this change will be made available later in 2010. Please plan to upgrade to a newer Technology Level at your earliest convenience.

AIX 6.1 Technology Level 0 (6100-00)

As a reminder, IBM is no longer providing generally available fixes or interim fixes for systems at AIX 6100-00.
