Storage Testing

Note  This content applies to the Windows Logo Kit (WLK). For the latest information using the new Windows Hardware Certification Kit (HCK), see Windows HCK User's Guide on the Windows Hardware Dev Center.

The following sections describe how to test storage devices and controllers to qualify them for the Windows logo.

Note   Run Storage > Adapter and LAN (Ethernet) test submissions for Windows Server 2008 on systems with a minimum of 4 processor cores and 6 gigabytes of memory. These requirements are in addition to those related to the Dynamic Partitioning (DP) Simulator and Test that all Windows Server 2008 device driver submissions must meet.

Note   Except for Para-Virtualization drivers (as defined by Logo Requirement Policy-0020), physical devices and their associated drivers being tested for Server Logo or Signature may not be tested in virtual machines using any form of virtualization. This is because not all virtualization products support the underlying functionality needed to pass the tests relating to Multiple Processor Groups, Device Power Management, Device PCI functionality, etc.

Note   The storage logo program names have changed. Use the following table to map the old names to the new names.
