Comment 4 Xu Bo 2007-03-22 04:44:36 EDT
Peter,
CPU: Please confirm whether the CPU tests on 32-bit and 64-bit were run with
Intel Pentium D 900 series(I presume it was 960(SL9AP)).

NETWORK: NC2320i, I presumed it BCM5721.

STORAGE: HP U320 SCSI FIO HBA ALL, I presumed it LSI Logic 53c1030.

About all the other tests required, please refer to the test plan. You can
leverage them from other cert or run the tests.

Thanks, Xu
Comment 5 Peter Rega 2007-03-22 18:22:53 EDT
Xu:

The two additional CPU tests were run on the single core Intel Pentium 6xx
series.  The full runs are using the Intel 9xx Dual core processors.  Note that
the 6xx series is using HT while the 9xx does not.

I will be providing the x64 test results and the leverage numbers soon.

Comment 6 Xu Bo 2007-03-28 23:11:45 EDT
Peter, need to confirm whether *Smart Array 641/642 Controller* are exact same
as Smart Array 6402/6404 mentioned in cert 229088.
Missing integrated SAS and SATA controller test results on 32bit. 

Thanks, Xu

Comment 7 Peter Rega 2007-03-29 11:00:32 EDT
Xu:
The 6402/4 utilize the same chipset as the 641/2, so they are the same thing.

The Integrated Four Channel SATA Controller is the local storage test that was
run.  We do not have an Integrated SAS Controller for this box, i do not see it
in the quick specs.
Comment 8 Peter Rega 2007-03-29 13:50:03 EDT
Xu,
We are going to leverage the embedded SATA controller test from the DL320G4
which uses the same controller.

The local tests were done on the SCSI model of the server.
Comment 9 Xu Bo 2007-03-29 22:04:22 EDT
Peter, sorry for my mistake about the integrated SAS controller. Removed this
items from the test plan.

Comment 12 Peter Rega 2007-04-06 11:00:16 EDT
Just added the dom0 log for x64.
Comment 13 Peter Rega 2007-04-06 11:23:56 EDT
Xu:

None of the processors in this system support VT.  The initial domU tests should
not have been done on this system since it does not fully support Xen.

This confusion came from Intel incorrectly reporting on their web site that the
processors are VT enabled when they are not.  Please delete the x32 domU log and
remove the tests from the test plan.  Thanks,

-peter

Will confirm with hw-team. 
All the other test results look pretty good.

Comment 17 Ronald Pacheco 2007-04-12 22:37:32 EDT
Per Intel's processor information website, the processor in this system, 960
(SL9AP), does support VT, hence the additional testing in the dom(u) is required.

See: http://processorfinder.intel.com/List.aspx?ProcFam=2112&sSpec=&OrdCode=
Comment 18 Peter Rega 2007-04-16 18:16:43 EDT
Ron,

The processor does support VT, however the ROM that we are shipping with this
box does not.  HP does not plan on offering VT support in the ROM, so this box
should not be listed as Xen certified.

Comment 19 Chris Williams 2007-05-09 10:40:52 EDT
Peter,

This cert is in need of FV results for 64-bit, but you say the BIOS won't be
supporting VT. However, 32-bit FV results are attached. Can you help us sort
this out?
Comment 20 Peter Rega 2007-05-09 11:26:16 EDT
Chris,

The BIOS does not support the option of setting the Intel VT option to enabled
as previously stated.

Your current certification does not require the running of fully virtualized
VMs, which is the only VM which requires the VT option to be enabled.

The initial 32-bit VM results were run as paravirtualized VMs and attached to
this submission as a mistake.  Since this system is not able to run a fully
virtualized VM it should not be listed as Xen supported.  A customer would be
very unhappy if they purchased a "Xen enabled" server and is unable to run a
fully virtualized VM on the system.

Comment 25 Chris Williams 2007-05-22 12:44:19 EDT
Hell Peter,

HWcert is still having problems with the  FV test results. Based on the fact
that the hardware list from those results matches that of a FV env. Cirrus Logic
video, QEMU HD, etc, and dmidecode doesn't work in a PV environment, HWcert
wants to make sure those results came from a different host. HWcert just wants
to make sure the BIOS prevents full virt and is looking for an explanation why
we have FV results on a box that is not supposed to be full virt capable. Sorry
for the nitpicking, it is a detail that needs to be followed up on. 
Comment 29 Chris Williams 2007-06-13 08:44:39 EDT
Hello Peter,

From HWcert, "it is possible and acceptable that a processor may have
some feature that a bios takes away". If HP is quite sure that the BIOS can
block the CPU's Virtualization feature successfully, we would remove the
requirements of FV tests.

Hello Peter,

From HWcert, "it is possible and acceptable that a processor may have
some feature that a bios takes away". If HP is quite sure that the BIOS can
block the CPU's Virtualization feature successfully, we would remove the
requirements of FV tests. And the cert would be posted as CERTIFIED on 32-bit
and 64-bit.

Thanks,
