I purchased a DEL 2950 server on Dec 2007 with 3 years NBD and now warranty is getting over by Dec 2010. I want to take NBD for another 3 Years but one of my vendors told me that DEL will provide NBD only for maximum 5 years from the purchase date which mean I will get NBD for only 2 years. Kindly help me to get clarify my confusion.
Do you know who would be able to help you most? Dell. Call Dell or email them and they will be able to clarify things for you 100% and they will be able to guarantee that what they are saying is the truth.
They don't go beyond 5 yrs because they cannot be sure they will have the required parts . . . technology does change. Without the old parts, they'd have to upgrade you to new technology. They'd rather you buy a new machine, which by then is probably a good idea.
