Three scripts have been created for testing your system during Manual mode operations:
Note - Each of these scripts tests the operating status of your entire system. If you want to test only a certain percentage of your system’s hard drives, see How to Test the Server's Hard Disks to change the test options.
quick.tst– This script performs a high-level test of all hardware components, including those components that require user input and a more in-depth memory test. You must interact with the Pc-Check utility to progress through these interactive tests. The tests cannot be run unattended and do not contain timeout facilities. The interactive tests wait until you provide the correct input.
noinput.tst– This script is used as a first triage of any hardware-related problems or issues. The script performs a high-level test of most hardware components, excluding those components that require user input (keyboard, mouse, sound, video). This test does not require user input.
full.tst– This script performs the most detailed and comprehensive test on all hardware components, including those components that require user input. This script contains a more in-depth memory test than quick.tst, as well as external port tests (which might require loopback connectors). You must interact with the test utility to progress through these interactive tests.
Note - The memory tests in Pc-Check detect single-bit Error-Correcting Code (ECC) memory failures and report them down to an individual DIMM.
When you select the Immediate Burn-in Testing menu option, the Continuous Burn-in Testing screen appears. The screen includes the list of options shown in the following table for running the tests. When a quick.tst, noinput.tst, or full.tst script is loaded, the defaults indicated in the third column are automatically loaded.
