Table 19-2 ifptest Command Line Syntax




The name of the device to test. 


Enable|Disable the mailbox loopback command. This test writes data patterns into the mailboxes and then reads them

back from the output mailboxes and verifies the data is correct. 


Enable|Disable the firmware revision check command. This test extracts the firmware revision from the RISC firmware code and verifies against expected values.


Enable|Disable the firmware checksum command.

This command instructs the interface's RISC processor to calculate the checksum on the current microcode and then compare it against the checksum that was loaded in with the microcode. 


Enable|Disable the firmware checksum command. This command returns the revision level of several sub-modules on the interface card. Although this test is executed when enabled, the module revision levels are only printed out in VERBOSE mode.

Note -

64-bit tests are located in the sparcv9 subdirectory: /opt/SUNWvts/bin/sparcv9/testname. If a test is not present in this directory, then it may only be available as a 32-bit test. For more information refer to "32-Bit and 64-Bit Tests".
