Information in this document applies to any platform.

We have a customer planning to procure LTO8 drives for SL8500 and the requirement is to have dual port connectivity on each drive. We have a conversion kit(7104424 - StorageTek LTO5, LTO6, and LTO7 dual port conversion kit for StorageTek SL8500, StorageTek SL3000, and StorageTek SL4000) available for all previous generation Drives up to LTO7 which enables the activation of second port on the tape drive. We couldn’t find similar conversion kit for LTO8 Drives.

Query:
1. Does LTO8 drives come with Both port active and connected internally?
2. If Not what is the part No. to be quoted for Dual port conversion kit for LTO8?
