Pinned topic SVC 6.4 SAN configuration rules - distance between SVC node and FC SW 100m?

‏2012-12-08T09:52:06Z |
Fibre Channel connections between SAN Volume Controller and the switch can
be up to 100 m using the standard small form-factor pluggable (SFP)
transceivers that are provided by SAN Volume Controller. Connections of up to
10,000 m are supported through longwave SFP transceivers. The supported
longwave SFP transceivers are available to order from IBM.

Version 6.4.0 Software Installation and Configuration Guide (GC27-2286-03)

1. Is the 100 m figure correct?
2. If not, how can I submit documentation feedback so that this gets fixed?

I left a comment on the document download page ( but I don't know what happens to those comments.
