Subscription FAQ

Additional information about subscriptions.

  1. Q: What types of SUSE subscriptions does Lenovo offer?

    A: Lenovo offers OEM subscriptions and Resell subscriptions for SUSE Linux, HPC, SAP, Containers and Ceph storage. “OEM” subscriptions come with industry leading 24x7 support from Lenovo offering a single point to call for any hardware or software issues. Please refer to the product list found in this document.

  2. Q: How is SUSE Linux Enterprise Server sold?

    A: SUSE subscriptions are sold in 1, 3 and 5-year options. These are not “licenses” but are subscriptions that provide access to all software downloads, patches, upgrades, etc. and the ability to contact Lenovo or SUSE for support. Support will be either 12x5 or 24x7 terms. Subscriptions are delivered from Lenovo to the customer.

  3. Q: How are the SUSE subscriptions delivered?

    A: SUSE subscription keys are inventoried by Lenovo and delivered via the Lenovo Key Management System (LKMS). Customers are sent an Authorization Code used to register the purchase on the LKMS. The actual subscription keys are then emailed to the customer to register at the customer’s SUSE user account.

  4. Q: Can I reassign a SUSE subscription in the case of new hardware or a disaster recovery scenario?

    A: Yes, SUSE subscriptions can be reassigned to a new server by changing the server on the customer’s SUSE account.
