Antivirus Testing Prerequisites

This section describes the tasks that you must complete before you test an antivirus driver by using the Windows Hardware Certification Kit (Windows HCK):

Hardware requirements

The following hardware is required for testing. You might need additional hardware if the test device provides bus-specific support. To determine whether additional hardware requirements apply, see the test description for each test.

  • One test computer that is running either the client or server version of Windows® 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) or Windows Server® 2008 R2 SP1

  • Another computer that is running Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1

noteNote
To certify your product for use on servers, the test computer must support four processors and a minimum of 1 GB of RAM. These system capabilities are required to test the Rebalance, D3 State, and Multiple Processor Group functionality of the device and driver. You do not need a computer that actually has more than 64 processors to test your device. Additionally, the server system(s) being used for device or driver testing must have Server Core installed prior to testing. For more information see Windows Server Installation Options.

If you use a pool of test computers to test your product, at least one computer in the pool must contain four processors and a minimum of 1 GB of RAM. Additionally, that computer must contain the product that you want to test. As long as the driver is the same on all the computers in the pool, the system creates a schedule to run against all test computers.

For tests that do not include a driver to test, such as hard disk drive tests, the Windows HCK scheduler constrains the tests that validate the device’s and driver’s Rebalance, D3 State and Multiple Processor Groups functionality to run on the default test computer. You must manually configure this computer to have multiple processor groups. The default computer is the first test computer in the list. Test personnel must make sure that the first test computer in the list meets the minimum hardware requirements.

noteNote
Except for para-virtualization drivers (as defined by Logo Program Requirement Policy-0020), you may not use any form of virtualization when you test physical devices and their associated drivers for server certification or signature. All virtualization products do not support the underlying functionality that is required to pass the tests that relate to multiple processor groups, device power management, device PCI functionality, and other tests.

Software Requirements

The following software is required for testing:

  • The antivirus filter driver under test

    WarningWarning
    Make sure that you install the product on the test computer before you install the Windows HCK Client.

Test computer configuration

To configure the test system, follow these steps:

  1. Determine the letter assignment for each volume:

     

    NTFS

    g:

    CNTFS

    i:

    Fat16

    k:

    Fat32

    l:

    ExFat

    m:

    UDF

    n:

  2. On the client computer, make sure that the following volumes are present:

    • NTFS 2gb

    • ntfs compressed 2gb

    • fat16 1gb

    • Fat32 1gb

    • Exfat 1gb

    • UDF 2gb

  3. In the controller, modify the parameters on the jobs in the $\WDK Tests\Storage\Filesystems section to point to test volumes, as follows:

    • TxF2: Modify ntfs and cntfs to point to test volumes.

    • ReparsePoints: Modify ntfs, cntfs, fat, fat32, exfat, and udf to point to test volumes.

    • Installable Filesystems filter test: Modify ntfs, cntfs, fat, fat32, exfat, and udf to point to test volumes.

    • Antivirus Installable Filesystems filter test: Modify ntfs, cntfs, fat, fat32, exfat, and udf to point to test volumes.

    • File IO test: Modify ntfs, cntfs, fat, fat32, exfat, and udf to point to test volumes.

    • Mapped File IO test: Modify ntfs, cntfs, fat, fat32, exfat, and udf to point to test volumes.

    • Object ID test: Modify ntfs, cntfs, fat, fat32, exfat, and udf to point to test volumes.

    • Oplocks test: Modify ntfs, cntfs, fat, fat32, exfat, and udf to point to test volumes.

    • Syscache test: Modify ntfs, cntfs, fat, fat32, exfat, and udf to point to test volumes.

  4. On the server, create a share that you name RDRTest.

  5. Modify the parameters in the $\WDK Tests\Leasing\SMB_OplockRDR test to point to the server name and share name.

Make sure that the test computer is in the ready state before you begin your testing. If a test requires parameters to be set before it is run, a dialog box will be displayed for that test. Review the specific test topic for more information.

Some Windows HCK tests require user intervention. When running tests for a submission, it is a best practice to run the automated tests in a block separately from manual tests. This prevents a manual test from interrupting completion of an automated test.
