Description of problem:
NDISTest6.0 - [2 Machine]-2c Mini6RSSSendRecv failed as a lot of errors on win8 guests
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot up guest with the CLI
/usr/libexec/qemu-kvm -m 6G -smp 8,cores=8 -cpu cpu64-rhel6,+x2apic,+sep -usb -device usb-tablet -drive file=win8-32-nic1.raw,if=none,id=drive-ide0-0-0,werror=stop,rerror=stop,cache=none -device ide-drive,bus=ide.0,unit=0,drive=drive-ide0-0-0,id=ide0-0-0 -netdev tap,sndbuf=0,id=hostnet0,vhost=on,script=/etc/qemu-ifup-private,downscript=no -device virtio-net-pci,netdev=hostnet0,mac=00:22:47:15:23:42,bus=pci.0,addr=0x4,id=virtio-net-pci0 -netdev tap,sndbuf=0,id=hostnet2,script=/etc/qemu-ifup0,downscript=no -device e1000,netdev=hostnet2,mac=00:32:58:14:3c:20,bus=pci.0,addr=0x6 -uuid 3b278c23-cb8b-4ba1-93af-a8c4f9a24037 -no-kvm-pit-reinjection -chardev socket,id=111a,path=/tmp/monitor-win8-32-64-nic1,server,nowait -mon chardev=111a,mode=readline -vnc :1 -vga cirrus -name win8-32-nic1-64-HCK -rtc base=localtime,clock=host,driftfix=slew -global PIIX4_PM.disable_s3=0 -global PIIX4_PM.disable_s4=0 -monitor stdio
2.submit the jobs to HCK
The job failed due to a lots errors
The job can pass
Will upload HCK files later

This failure may be caused by absent CPU grouping configuration (see here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/jj123528.aspx).
Following commands have to be executed on HCK client to configure CPU grouping properly:
bcdedit.exe /set groupsize 2
bcdedit.exe /set groupaware on
shutdown.exe -r -t 0 -f
I've tried this on Windows Server 2008 R2 and it helped.
Please, retest on all other relevant systems (Windows 7 32/64, Windows 8 32/64, Windows Server 2012).
NOTE: Please pay attention that there is another bug (BZ#960844) that leads to BSOD on support machine side during RSS tests. It looks like a tester bug that reproduces much more often with CPU grouping configured. While we are dealing with it please configure CPU grouping on test machine only and explicitly clear this configuration on support machine.
In order to clear CPU grouping configuration on support machine please run following commands:
bcdedit.exe /deletevalue groupsize
bcdedit.exe /deletevalue groupaware
shutdown.exe -r -t 0 -f
Thanks in advance,
We retest NDISTest6.0 - [2 Machine]-2c Mini6RSSSendRecv on win2k8R2 and win8-32 guest accoding to comment 4:
1.Job passed on win2k8R2 guest with configure CPU grouping on both nic1 and nic2;
2.Job still failed(guest still bsod with 7E code) on win8-32 guest even with configure CPU grouping on test machine only and explicitly clear this configuration on support machine.I will aso update it on BZ#960844.
Thanks a lot.
Closing the issue according to Comment #5
BSOD on support machine is tracked by BZ#960844.
