iSCSI Ping Test (HBA)

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: Manual Test

Overview

The iSCSI Ping (HBA) test verifies that iSCSI initiators (HBA) can send and receive ping requests.

Details

This test operates in two phases:

  • The first phase verifies that the HBA responds to ping requests by sending a ICMP echo packets to the HBA by using a network card in the test system.

  • The second phase verifies the HBA can send ICMP echo packets to another address, which in this case is the network card in the test system.
