The Parallel test verifies the functionality of the IEEE 1284 parallel port
device by performing an internal loopback test that transfers a known data
" Serial Test
The Serial test checks the system's on-board serial ports (zs[0,1], zsh[0,1],
se[0,1], and se_hdlc[0,1]), as well as multi-terminal interface (ALM2) boards
). Data is written and read in asynchronous and synchronous
modes utilizing various internal loopback paths.
SPARCstorage" Array Controller Test
This test checks the functionality of the controller board on the
SPARCstorage" array by checking the state of the array's battery and fan
modules. It also invokes SCSI read buffer commands of various sizes to the
array's NVRAM, verifying the host and array Fibre Channel hardware, the
array resident management software, and the hardware component
interaction on the array controller card.
This test verifies that the tape drive is connected, the tape media is loaded,
and the drive type can be determined.
