Chapter 3. Installing Oracle HCTS

Before installing Oracle HCTS, ensure that the Oracle Solaris 10 OS or Oracle Solaris 11 OS is installed and running. You might need to do a few configurations when installing Oracle Solaris 10 OS or the Oracle Solaris 11 OS. This chapter explains the installation and configuration of OS and Oracle HCTS for certifying various types of devices.

This chapter covers the following sections.


Configuring the Oracle Solaris 10 OS Installation

For Oracle Solaris 10 installation details, see the Oracle Solaris 10 Release and Installation Collection web page.

While installing the Oracle Solaris 10 OS, partition the disk to satisfy the requirements mentioned in Chapter 2, System Requirements.

To verify whether you are running the Oracle Solaris 10 OS or the Oracle Solaris 11 OS, type the following command.

# cat /etc/release

While installing the Oracle Solaris 10 OS, you must make the following customization in the GUI prompt.

  • Select None for Name Service.

  • Select Initial Install for Upgrade or Initial Install.

  • Select Custom Install and then select Developer group or above. You must perform at least a Developer group installation. See the Oracle Solaris 10 Package List for a list of what you get with different types of installations.

You might have to backup your test systems and reinstall the Oracle Solaris OS before you install and run Oracle HCTS.


Configuring the Oracle Solaris 11 OS Installation

While installing the Oracle Solaris 11 OS, partition the disk to satisfy the requirements mentioned in Chapter 2, System Requirements.

For the Oracle Solaris 11 OS installation details, see the Oracle Solaris 11 OS Installation Guide.


Installing the Oracle HCTS Application

For certifying system, network, InfiniBand, WiFi, network performance and serial I/O devices, install Oracle HCTS on both TM and SUT.

For certifying USB, storage, CD/DVD, audio, and video devices or testing CPU/Memory, storage performance, Suspend/Resume, install Oracle HCTS on SUT.

For certifying External Storage devices, install Oracle HCTS on four machines. For more information, see Chapter 5, External Storage Certification.

For Solaris 10 OS, the Oracle HCTS 5.6 archive is a tar file from which you need to extract the contents.

For Oracle Solaris 11 OS, there are two methods to install Oracle HCTS 5.6. The first is similar to Solaris 10 OS where Oracle HCTS 5.6 archive is a tar file from which you need to extract the contents. The second one is installing Oracle HCTS from the Image Packaging System (IPS) repository as shown in To Install from IPS Repository.

This section describes the following topics.

To Extract the Oracle HCTS File Content

  • To extract the Oracle HCTS contents, type the following command.

    # gzip -cd hcts.5.6.tar.gz | tar xvf -

    • If you are working on the SPARC platform the package is hcts.5.6-sparc.tar.gz. To extract the contents of this package, type the following command.

      # gzip -cd hcts.5.6-sparc.tar.gz | tar xvf -

      The contents are extracted to a directory called hcts.5.6 or hcts.5.6-sparc, which is placed in the directory where you downloaded Oracle HCTS. This hcts.5.6 or hcts.5.6-sparc directory contains the following files.

      • Oracle HCTS 5.6 README

      • Oracle HCTS 5.6 Release notes

      • Oracle HCTS 5.6 ThirdPartyLicenseReadMe

      • SUNWhcts package


    Note - Be sure to read the Oracle HCTS 5.6 README and Oracle HCTS 5.6 Release notes in the /hcts_extract_dir/hcts.5.6 directory before you install Oracle HCTS.

    Installation verifies that no previous version of Oracle HCTS exists on your system. If Oracle HCTS is already installed on the system, uninstall the existing version using procedures mentioned in Uninstalling Oracle HCTS


To Install Oracle HCTS

  1. Log in as a root by using the su command.

    # su

  2. To add the Oracle HCTS package, type the following command.

    # /usr/sbin/pkgadd -d . SUNWhcts

    Watch for any questions or error messages and respond accordingly. The Oracle HCTS installation performs the following functions.

    • Verifies that no version of Oracle HCTS is already installed on the system.

    • Installs the package SUNWhcts in the /opt directory.

    • Installs the x11perf binary file in the /usr/X11/demo/ directory.

    • Installs the x11perf.1x man page file in the /usr/X11/share/man/man1 directory for the video test case.

    • Creates a /docs directory in the /opt/SUNWhcts directory.

To Install from IPS Repository

The steps to use the HCTS ISO file for installing SUNWhcts package are as follows. Note that platformD represents the platform of your system (for example, SPARC or X64) and versionN represents the HCTS version number.

  1. Log in as a root by using the su command.

    # su

  2. Mount the ISO image as a filesystem by using any one of the following command.

    # mount -F hsfs <full_path_to>/hcts-platformD-versionN.iso /mnt

    or

    # mount -F hsfs -o ro `lofiadm -a <full_path_to>/hcts-platformD-versionN.iso` /mnt

  3. Add an additional origin to the existing Solaris publisher.

    # pkg set-publisher -g file:///mnt/repo hcts

  4. Perform the installation of hcts packages.

    # pkg install pkg://hcts/diagnostic/SUNWhcts

  5. Before starting HCTS, ensure to run these steps without exception.

    # umount -f  /mnt
    # /opt/SUNWhcts/bin/reconfigure

Installing the Oracle HCTS InfiniBand HCA Application

This section describes the following topics.

To certify an InfiniBand Host Channel Adapter (HCA), you must install the Oracle HCTS InfiniBand HCA application and the Oracle HCTS application on the TM and SUT systems.

Extracting the Oracle HCTS InfiniBand HCA File Content

The Oracle HCTS 5.6 IB HCA archive is a tar file from which you need to extract the contents. The name of the downloaded file is hcts.5.6.ib-${ARCH}.tar.gz. The ${ARCH} value represents the processor type, that is SPARC or i386. For example, the IB HCA package for x86 platform is named as hcts.5.6.ib-i386.tar.gz.

To extract the Oracle HCTS InfiniBand HCA file content, type the following command on each machine.

# gzip -cd hcts.5.6.ib-$(ARCH).tar.gz | tar xvf -

The contents are extracted to a directory called hcts.5.6.ib-${ARCH}, which is placed in the directory where you have downloaded the Oracle HCTS InfiniBand HCA.

The hcts.5.6.ib-${ARCH} directory contains the following files.

  • hcts.5.6.ib.README

  • SUNWstc-infiniband-ibtf package

  • SUNWstc-dtet package

Installing the SUNWstc-infiniband-ibtf Package

Be sure to read the hcts.5.6.ib.README in the /hcts_extract_dir/hcts.5.6.ib-${ARCH} directory before you install the SUNWstc-infiniband-ibtf package.

On each system, perform the following steps to install the SUNWstc-infiniband-ibtf package.

  1. Log in as a root by using the su command.

    # su

  2. Add the SUNWstc-infiniband-ibtf package.

    # /usr/sbin/pkgadd -d . SUNWstc-infiniband-ibtf

Watch for any questions or error messages from the installation and respond accordingly. The SUNWstc-infiniband-ibtf installation performs the following actions.

  • Verifies that no version of the SUNWstc-infiniband-ibtf is already installed on the system.

  • Installs the package SUNWstc-infiniband-ibtf into the /opt directory.

Installing the SUNWstc-dtet Package

Be sure to read hcts.5.6.ib.README in the /hcts_extract_dir/hcts.5.6.ib-${ARCH} directory before you install the SUNWstc-dtet package. Installation verifies that no previous version of the SUNWstc-dtet is on your system. If SUNWstc-dtet is already installed on this system, uninstall the existing version manually.

On each system, perform the following steps to install the SUNWstc-dtet package.

  1. Log in as a root by using the su command.

    # su

  2. Add the SUNWstc-dtet package.
