Merging a Package in HCK lists multiple OS RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have distributed the tests for Windows Server 2012 on 2 machines. After passing the distributed tests on each machine, we packaged it (Package 1 and Package 2) then merged it into the final package (Package 3). When we're trying to submit it on the dashboard, it listed 2 Windows Server 2012. Will that conflict our submission?

    What should we do?

  • The number of machines should not make a difference. The package just keep tracks of the various machines used in the testing process. The big difference will be if all the tests are run and passed (for the certification level) in the newly created package.

    Dear John. Thank you for replying.

    The issue that we are having though is : when a submission package is made by merging our test logs, and then adding the driver folder, some of the OSes being tested get listed multiple times in the list of OSes which apply to the driver package. This possibly indeed due to the different machines used in the tests?

    Please see below screenshot of the Windows 8 package that shows this behavior.

    We are thus worried the submission will fail when we submit this. But as you stated, it should still be ok? Also; do we select all OSes to be valid for the driver package , even the duplicated listed ones?

  • You only need to select the targets that are different and apply to your driver. In your case, all the targets are the same (even though they are from different machines). You only need to select one of those targets.

    An example of where something could be different would be if the target (device) was the same on different machine but the OS was different. You would need to select both targets (assuming the driver supported both OS) or add two different drivers and select the appropriate target based on the driver OS.
