In the face of emerging LTO8 and our own aging LTO5, connected through a TB Sanlink2 FC 8GB, we were able to get a NEO LTO7. The compatibility page for the SanLink2 from Oct. 2016 states the LTO6 and no changes have been made since. I am kind of struggling to get the proper transceivers as the list is not very long to begin with and again, it's on Oct. 2016 level. Is there an update to the receiver compatibility list or a beta driver or even a plan to cover Neo LTO7?

Help would be highly appreciated

Hi Thomas,

The 8Gb or 16Gb SFPs on the SANLink compatibility list should work in any FC device. As long as the base model of the SFP is the same, later versions should still work.

The compatibility testing is really for the electrical side of the SFP working with the SANLink, not the actual physical device at the other end of the FC cable.
