OpenServer 6/UnixWare 7 HBA Testsuites
The hbacert package contains test and certification suites
used to test SDI HBA and target drivers with their associated hardware.
For information about the entire UnixWare/OpenServer
Hardware Developers Kit (HDK) release, see the
HDK Release Notes.

They are also available on your local system when the
BASEman and HDKdoc packages are installed.
The hbacert suite requires a SCO UnixWare 7 system with
the following packages installed:
Base Operating System, commands and utilities
Enhanced Application Compatibility
UDK Optimizing C Compilation System
or a SCO OpenServer 6.0.0 system.
Individual tests have additional prerequisites for the hardware being
below for more information.
This package cannot be installed on OpenServer 5 systems.
Similar test suites are provided for OpenServer 5 SCSI drivers
in the O5hbacert package.
To install the hbacert package:
Download the hbacert ISO image from here and create a CD.
to install the packages you can marry the ISO image on
your UnixWare 7 or OpenServer 6 system.
some hbacert tests require the physical hbacert CD to run.
Insert the hbacert CD.
Log in as root.
command to install hbacert by entering:
pkgadd -d /mnt/hbacert.pkg all
The major changes since HDK Release 7.0.0:
The HBA Certification Requirements Checklist, which provides a clear
process for IHVs to follow in getting their drivers certified,
is included under the testsuites/doc directory (under the
hbacert $HOME directory,
which is by default ~hbacert).
The online documentation describes the new process and how to use the
The checklist is included in the SCO Driver Delivery Handbook
which is available by special request from SCO.
All tests have been revised for this release to address customer
reported problems and improve performance.
The test source code is included in the hbacert installation directory.
This test source is included for reference purposes only and is not
intended to allow customers to build the tests.
See the individual test directories under the hbacert
$HOME/testsuites directory for the scripts used to run the tests.
Please observe the following limitations when running the
Running more than one invocation of any of the Certification Test Suites
on the same machine may lead to unexpected and unpredictable results.
Only the the hbacert CD or the HDK 7.1 CDROM should be used as the
input test pattern CD for the cdrom tests.
The HDK 7.1 CDROM test pattern will not work with older (pre-7.1)
versions of hbacert.
We recommend 150M tape drive for the multiple-volume cpio test.
High capacity drives (e.g., DLT drives) are not recommended at this
time because of performance issues.
