User Based Pricing Authorization

The following terms apply to Your use of the i5/OS (5761–SS1) Program on a machine that offers user based pricing.

Your authorized use of the Program is limited to the number of processors and to the number of users you were authorized to use on the specific machine when the Program was originally installed. The terms for the number of processors are unchanged.

You must also acquire entitlement for the maximum number of i5/OS Users simultaneously authenticated on the machine (concurrent i5/OS Users). An i5/OS User is a person who accesses the Program via one or more connections, exchanging credentials (form of user identification) directly with the Program or indirectly through application or middleware software supported by the Program.
