HCK Enclosure/JBOD certification RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    To certify one of my JBOD/Enclosure, I started setup with a enclosure connected directly to client machine with two SAS HBA's i.e. one cable connected from each IOM in my enclosure to each HBA port.

    After that I selected my enclosure and disks in as "Generic SCSI Enclosure Device" as a test SES Device and Disk device.

    When executing cases found that scs compliance test case is failing with below errors.

    Start Test

    ASSERTION: RECEIVE DIAGNOSTIC RESULTS Additional Element Status diagnostic page Test

    Description: Device should return the diagnostic page specified in the PAGE CODE field which is the Additional Element Status diagnostic page

    Expectation: The device must return diagnostic page for the page asked

    Rationale: This CDB is used to report the result of diagnostic operation specified with Send Diagnostic as we test the default self test feature.

    Also observed that because of this compliance test failure other cases like SES test are also failing.

    For enclosure/JBOD certification, Is this connection and configuration is correct. Please need help in coming out of this problem

    Thanks in advance,

  • From your description, I believe that your configuration is correct.

    As the test is stating, it is sending down a RECEIVE DIANOSTICS RESULTS command to the enclosure, where we specify the page code of 0xa. We don't see anything back, so it's a failure.
