NOTE: Degraded operation or non-compliance

The 'DS-xxxxx-xx' model number prefix defines new DIGITAL storage products. In some cases, these numbers may be similar to an existing product number. For example, DS-BA35X-HE ac power controller and BA35X-HE ac power controller. These products are not interchangeable. Installing incompatible products in a StorageWorks subsystem could result in degraded operation or non-compliance with country specific certifications.
