Please reference the Quick Start Guide.


Limited Defect Support:

CP3KEXTR is an “as is” program; defect support is not provided via the normal IBM support structure. Instead, report problems via email to zpcr@us.ibm.com.

Defect support will not be staffed on a 24/7 basis. Responses to defect inquiries will be made on a best effort basis but generally should be expected within 48 hours.
