MSL8089 - LX firmware names - what does LX Mean?

Hi All

 

I've got a MSL8096 Fibre Library and looking at various posts and L&TT the last update is 1130

 

So looking at HP Tape Tools we can down load

 

HP MSL G3 Seriers  1130

 

or

 

HP MSL G3 Seriers 1130

 

so whats the difference?

 

MSL8096_1130.frm  1818KB

or

MSL8096_LX_1130.frm 5375KB

 

So my question is apart from the size of the file - whats the  LX stand for??

This is the same firmware for the library itself + library extender firmware (using this special part you can stack several libraries to a single unit).
