To test systems, InfiniBand, network components, network performance, WiFi, Suspend/Resume feature, and serial I/O components and NIC FMA test, you need two test machines with the following details.
Test Manager system (TM) - System that is used by the SUT to test system, network, InfiniBand, WiFi, Suspend/Resume feature, network performance feature, and serial I/O devices. The TM should be a system that is already listed on the HCL as Certified.
Storage, storage performance, CD or DVD reader and writer, video, audio, CPU memory, USB devices, tape drive devices, Performance Monitor, Storage FMA test and virtual platforms certifications require only SUT to be configured.
To test external storage devices, you need four machines. For more information, see the External Storage Certification.
To test FCoE devices, refer to the requirements of storage and network testing, as FCoE testing requires storage and network certification to be done on FCoE devices.
Table 2–1 lists the types of tests and its requirements. It also indicates the number of machines required for each test. The entry Required indicates that the particular type of certification requires the respective number of test machines. For example, to do system certification, you might need two test systems.
