Use the Immediate Burn-in Testing menu option to run burn-in test scripts on your server. Immediate Burn-in tests include full server-level tests and component-level tests. You can use predefined tests or you can create and run your own tests.
Use the Immediate Burn-in Testing menu option to run burn-in test scripts on your server.
This section includes the following topics:
Three scripts have been created for testing your server during Manual mode operations:
Note - Each of these scripts tests the operating status of your entire server. If you want to test only a certain percentage of your server’s hard drives, refer to To Test the Hard Disks of the Server 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, as well as 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 memory module (DIMM).
When you select the Immediate Burn-in Testing menu option, the Continuous Burn-in Testing window is displayed. The screen includes the list of options shown in Test Menu Options 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.
Table 3-3 Test Menu Options
To load one of the scripts available to test the devices on your server, follow these steps:

A text box is displayed.
To use a pre-written test – Enter one of the following: quick.tst, noinput.tst, or full.tst
To use a script that you have created and saved – Enter d:\testname.tst where testname is the name of the script that you have created.
Opens the Burn-in Options menu, which enables you to modify the various options listed in Test Menu Options for the currently loaded test script.
Opens a listing of the tests available for your server configuration and the currently loaded test script.
