Unless otherwise specified, warranty, service, and support for non-IBM products are provided directly to you by the product manufacturer, supplier or publisher of the product. IBM makes no representations or warranties regarding the non-IBM products. The inclusion of an IBM or nonIBM product on an interoperability list is not a guarantee that it will work with the designated IBM storage product. In addition, not all software and hardware combinations created from compatible components will necessarily function properly together. The following list includes products developed or distributed by companies other than IBM. IBM does not provide service or support for the non-IBM products listed, but does not prohibit them from being used together with IBM's storage products. During problem debug and resolution, IBM may require that hardware or software additions be removed from the IBM product to provide problem determination and resolution on the IBM-supplied hardware/software. For support issues regarding non-IBM products, please contact the manufacturer of the product directly. IBM does not warrant either functionality or problem resolution of any non-IBM products.

To take full advantage of the constant improvements in the IBM System Storage DS3000 series firmware, you should upgrade to the latest code levels as soon as it is available. The latest code levels are available by selecting the Product Support link from the appropriate DS3000 series model page located at: http://www-1.ibm.com/servers/storage/disk/index.html
