System - Downlevel - Bluetooth 2.1 Logo Tests (Windows 8)

This automated test verifies the mandatory functionality of Bluetooth 2.1 features such as Secure Simple Pairing (SSP) and Extended Inquiry Response (EIR). These tests verify the previous features by running different combinations of tests on selected Bluetooth hardware. It requires two computers. The first computer acts as the primary computer the second acts as the secondary computer. The tests are copied locally to the WTTJobsWorking directory.

Running the test

Before you run the test, complete the test setup as described in the test requirements: System Client Testing Prerequisites.

Enabling collection of Event Tracing for Windows (ETW) traces assists with diagnosing test failures.

These traces capture the HCI traffic sent to and from the Bluetooth stack. They can be decoded using Netmon and the Bluetooth ETW parsers. It is recommended to first investigate the issue internally using these traces or some other method of capturing over-the-air traces because many controller/stack inter-operability issues can be observed in these traces.

You can view the collected logs using Netmon and the Bluetooth NPL parsers. These parsers can be obtained through installing the WDK.


For troubleshooting information, see Troubleshooting System Client Testing.

This test will always return Pass or Fail. To review test details, review the test log from the DTM Studio.
