1. Downloading software off the SPL website is for current subscribers of the
SPL Kit; thus login credentials
change quarterly. As long as a customer is a subscriber, login
credentials will be made available in the SPL
Cover Letter. If a customer is on electronic delivery, on the
HP Software Updates & Media Portal the
Cover Letter can be found in every Alpha product you have under
contract under the
link. For those customers that have chosen the hard media option,
the Cover Letter will remain part of the
Kit. Additonally, a file version is on disk 1 of the Layered Products CD set, in
the README directory.
2. Customers who believe they have a current SPL subscription, need
to review their Support Agreement, SAID,
to be sure that the specific operating system (OpenVMS Alpha,
OpenVMS VAX, or Tru64 Unix) Software
Library offering is included in their contract. See
for specific product numbers.
3. Customers can view their Support Agreement contract detail by logging into
HP's WWW.esca.hp.com .

Contract Assistant (SCA) account to view your detail, then follow the
screen instruction to register, and you can request an account.
4 . Confirmation is required from the Support Agreement's contract
administrator that the contract is up to date
before we can send/release download login credentials.
