Oracle Hardware Certification Test Suite (Oracle HCTS) is an application that includes several tests for the Oracle Solaris Operating System (OS) Hardware Certification Program. Oracle HCTS enables you to certify your systems, components, and virtual platforms for the Oracle Solaris OS SPARC and x86 platforms. This tool is useful for independent hardware vendors (IHVs), system manufacturers, and system integrators.
Be sure to download the most updated version of Oracle HCTS. Check the Oracle HCTS web site frequently to see whether a newer version is available. Before installing Oracle HCTS, back up your test systems and install the most updated version of the Oracle Solaris OS SPARC and x86 platforms. See the Oracle Solaris web site to check for a newer version of the Oracle Solaris OS.
