SunVTS 3.0 Test Reference Manual

Chapter 12 StorEdge 1000 Enclosure Test (enctest)

enctest tests the StorEdge 1000 enclosures. The enclosure can support either 12 1" 4GB drives or 8 1.6" 9GB drives and have redundant power and cooling. Two enclosure models are available:

enctest can be used for validation, configuration verification, repair verification, and fault isolation of both models.

The enctest probe detects all the connected StorEdge enclosures and displays the status of the various elements in the enclosure.

enctest sets the StorEdge D1000 LEDs as follows:

Indicated Condition 

On 

Unrecoverable or critical condition 

Blinking 

Non-critical condition 

Off 

Informational or no condition to report 


Note -

NOTE: The ses driver must be present on the system with the StorEdge enclosure(s). If the ses driver is not present, SunVTS will not detect the StorEdge hardware. Use the following command to see if the ses driver is present: pkginfo SUNWsesInstall the package if necessary.


enctest reports the status of the various elements in the enclosure. An error is registered if an unrecoverable or critical condition is detected. Non-critical conditions are reported through warning messages. The table below describes the information that is reported for each enclosure element.
