Gumbo offers two choices for licensing our IBM i software products, system wide licensing and partition licensing. These are mutually exclusive. A system wide license applies to a specific system serial number and processor group and is good for any and all partitions in the system. A partition license applies to a specific system serial number, partition number, and maximum processor capacity, and is not valid for a system that has not been partitioned. For the overwhelming majority of our customers, a system wide license (~ 98%) is the best choice. A partition license (~ 2%) is the best choice in very limited circumstances involving small partitions on large machines.

Please describe the reason for the change and fill in any additional instructions needed to process your request correctly. Do not include urls.

The intent here is that you not end up with more permanently authorized copies of the license than you have purchased. If you are changing processor groups on the same serial number and have a system wide license or if you are changing the processor capacity and have a partition only license, then you won't need to delete the software.
