Introduction This document is intended to provide users of the Intel Board SE7320EP2 and SE7525RP2 with a guide to the different operating systems, adapter cards, and peripherals tested by Intel on this platform. This document will continue to be updated as new adapters, peripherals, and operating systems are tested or until the Intel Board SE7320EP2 and SE7525RP2 is no longer in production. Each new release of the document will present updated information as well as continue to provide the information from previous releases. Intel will only provide support for those adapters and peripherals under the specified system configuration (System BIOS and Firmware revisions) and operating systems versions with which they were tested. 1.1 Test Overview Testing performed on the Intel Board SE7320EP2 and SE7525RP2 is classified under two separate categories: Basic Installation Testing, and Adapter / Peripheral Compatibility and Stress Testing Basic Installation Testing Basic installation testing is performed with each supported operating system. Basic installation testing validates that the server board can install the operating system and that the base hardware feature set is functional. A small set of peripherals is used for installation purposes only. No add-in adapter cards are tested. Testing includes network connectivity and running of proprietary and industry standard test suites. The latest version of an operating system signifies the latest supported version at the time of the actual test run. Each new release of this document may have a newly supported release of a given operating system. Previous releases of a supported operating system may not be tested beyond the basic installation test process Support Commitment for Basic Installation Testing Intel commits to provide the following level of customer support for operating systems that receive only basic installation testing: Intel will provide and test operating system drivers for each of the server board s integrated controllers, provided that the controller vendor has a driver available upon request. Vendors will not be required by Intel to develop drivers for operating systems that they do not already support. This may limit the functionality of certain server board integrated controllers. Intel will support customer issues that involve installation and/or functionality of operating system with the server board s integrated controllers only if a driver has been made available. 1 Introduction IntelP P Board SE7320EP2 and SE7525RP2 Intel will NOT provide support for issues related to use of any add-in adapters or peripherals installed in the server system when an operating system that received basic installation testing only is in use. Support is defined as assistance in root causing issues, and determining a customer acceptable resolution to the issue associated with the operating system. The resolution may include, but is not limited to, on-board controller driver changes, engaging the vendor for resolution, BIOS changes, firmware changes, or determining a customer acceptable workaround for the issue Adapter/Peripheral Compatibility and Stress Testing Adapter/Peripheral Compatibility and Stress testing is performed only on the most current release of a supported operating system at the time of a given validation run. The Adapter / Peripheral Compatibility and Stress testing process consists of three areas: Base Platform, Adapter Compatibility, and Stress. Base Platform: Each base platform will successfully install a given operating system, successfully run a disk stress test, and successfully run a network stress test. Adapter Compatibility: Adapter compatibility validation (CV) testing uses test suites to gain an accurate view of how the server performs with a wide variety of adapters under the primary supported operating systems. These tests are designed to show hardware compatibility between the cards and the server platform and include functional testing only. No heavy stressing of the systems or the cards is performed for CV testing. Stress Testing: This test sequence uses configurations that include add-in adapters in all available slots, (depending on chassis used) for a minimum 72-hour test run without injecting errors. Each configuration passes an installation test, a Network/Disk Stress test, and tape backup test. Any fatal errors that occur will require a complete test restart Support Commitment for Adapter / Peripheral Compatibility and Stress Testing Intel commits to provide the following level of customer support for operating systems that receive Adapter / Peripheral Compatibility and Stress testing: Intel will provide support for customer issues with these operating systems involving installation and/or functionality of the server board with or without the adapters and peripherals listed in this document as having been tested under the particular operating system. Support is defined as assistance in root causing issues, and determining a customer acceptable resolution to the issue associated with the operating system. The resolution may include, but is not limited to, on-board controller driver changes, engaging the vendor for resolution, BIOS changes, firmware changes, or determining a customer acceptable workaround for the issue. Intel will provide and test operating system drivers for each onboard video, network, and storage controller. Intel will enable vendors to provide driver support for add-in adapters using these operating systems. 2 IntelP P Board SE7320EP2 and SE7525RP2 Introduction Intel will go through some of the steps to achieve certification to ensure its customers do not run across any problems, but the actual certification is the responsibility of the individual customer. For operating systems, adapter cards, and peripherals not listed in this document, there is no support commitment. Intel will consider support requests on a case-by-case basis. 1.2 Pass/Fail Test Criteria For each operating system, adapter, and peripheral configuration, a test passes if specific criteria are met. Specific configurations may have had particular characteristics that were addressed on a case-by-case basis. In general, a configuration passes testing if the following conditions are met: The operating system installed without error. - Manufacturer s installation instructions or Intel s best-known methods were used for the operating system installation. - No extraordinary workarounds were required during the operating system installation. - The server system behaved as expected during and after the operating system installation. - Application software installed and executed normally. Hardware compatibility tests ran to completion without error. Test software suites executed successfully - Test and data files were created in the correct directories without error. - Files copied from client to server and back compare to the original with zero errors reported. - Clients remain connected to the server system. - Industry standard test suites run to completion with zero errors reported. All Intel Board SE7320EP2 and SE7525RP2 testing was performed using the Intel Entry Level Chassis SC5275-E 3 Board SE7320EP2 and SE7525RP2 Base System C 2. Intel Board SE7320EP2 and SE7525RP2 Base System Configurations The following table lists the base system configurations tested. Base system configurations will change as new revisions of the Intel server board SE7320EP2 and SE7525RP2 are released and/or new system BIOS and BMC firmware are cut onto the board in the factory. Each base system configuration is assigned an identifier number that is referenced in the tables throughout this document. New base system configurations are added with each new release of this document. Intel will only provide support for adapters and peripherals under the specified base system configuration and operating systems versions with which they were tested.
