Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 145015
RHR cert tests require a unique PASS for each PCI card
Last modified: 2007-04-18 13:18:09 EDT
Description of problem:
Related to Bug #145012, we are concerned that the RHR Certification tests seem
to require a unique PASS for each PCI card slot in the system. For our servers
with 32 or more end-user PCI slots, this would take a tremendous amount of time
Even in an 8-PCI slot server, ispec created 9 PASSes for us to run. 6 of those
PASSes are identical except for a difference in "Put a card in PC card slot #X."
I gather from the documentation I've read, that I must run and pass each
ksX.cfg in order to be certified. However, I want to know if we can (or why we
can't) just say that my (example) pass #4 had PC cards in slots 4 through 8.
Why does ispec force a seperate PASS for each PC card slot?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Setting priority HIGH as we cannot self-certify without this being changed.
Sorry, setting this back to Normal. That was a mistake to set this one as High.
Actually what is meant by PC Cards is PCMCIA/CardBus sockets instead
of PCI slots; this will be updated with a clearer message in a future
release. Testing does not require a per PCI slot test at the moment
so this should be a non-issue with regards to the actual certification.
Oh, thank you. Sorry for the confusion.
Again, thank you. Now closing bug.
