IBM System x3550 7978 EOL official documentation

2019-10-17, 10:53 AM

Hi I have a question about x3550 7978-Y47. I had purchased this machine already refurbished (but it's still ok) and I have to find his EOL. This is to show the accounting that it is time to upgrade the hardware. Searching on the portal IBM Warrantylookup and idem that of Lenovo was not recognized the serial of the machine despite printed for 3 times on different parts of the server. Can someone help me? Where do I find an official document for EOL of this precise model (I know it is a question that makes people smile but it is not so for the accounting office)?

I think what your looking for is the following website:




Example from looking at the link I can see the 7870 AC1 will be going end of service on 12/31/19


Please let me know if that is what your looking for and if that resolves your question please be sure to mark this as resolved so others may find it.
