iSCSI Digest - Tape (Target)

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.

Type: Automated Test

Overview

The iSCSI Digest - Tape (Target) test verifies that an iSCSI tape/media changer target supports header and data digests as negotiated during the logon phase.

Details

The iSCSI Digest - Tape (Target) test performs the following algorithm:

  1. Prepare the system for iSCSI operations:
    1. If the target that you are testing is already logged on, the session information is saved so the session can be restored later.
    2. The target tape device is added as a static iSCSI target.
  2. Perform iSCSI operations:
    1. If target that you are testing is already logged on, the current session to the target is logged out.
    2. The target is logged on by using the Microsoft iSCSI Initiator with header digests enabled.
    3. After logging on to the target, the test waits for the tape device to be enumerated by the test system.
    4. The test will perform tape I/O operations by using the current target session.
    5. The test repeats the preceding steps with data digests only enabled and header and data digests enabled.
    6. The target under test must permit logon by using all three digest combinations and no I/O failures can be detected during I/O operations.
  3. Restore any previous iSCSI target sessions.

Running iSCSI Digest - Tape (Target)

  1. Log on to the tape target and format the target.

  2. Run the test as a DTM job.

  3. Enter the required data in the configuration dialog box that appears when this job is scheduled.

Troubleshooting

  1. Look at the job results log file for test failures

  2. Verify the iSCSI configuration information is entered correctly in the configuration dialog box when the job is scheduled from Device Console.

Test Assertions

1.1 Setting up test, and saving open sessions.
Test Assertion GUID: 0df19e9d-c42e-11da-94f4-00123f3a6b60
Windows Logo Program: STORAGE-0001 Storage devices meet industry standards and Windows requirements
Additional Information: The setup stage must get the current sessions to the target and then persist that information so it can be used to reestablish these sessions during the cleanup stage.
2.1 The MS Initiator must be able to log into the target successfully with digests enabled
