Information in this document applies to any platform.

Please tell me the meaning of the following sentences in 2-4 page of this manual(*).

"T10000D FRS_8.30 or later (full drive support)" -> What "full drive support"?

My customer(**) will change the drive from the current T9840D to the next T10000D.
We are investigating the microcode level of the SL8500.

Since the SL8500 is "FRS 8.07", it satisfies "FRS 8.07" of T10000 D minimum request.
