We follow these steps to define the methods by which we initiate testing

Step 1

Identify all the methods by which we initiate testing :

  • URL install source available
  • DVD image(s) available
  • CD image(s) available
  • Live Image

Step 2

List test scenarios,it will make clear that which suite needs to support.

  Methods to boot vmlinuz+initrd.img
Test DVD CD boot.iso PXE images efidisk.img Live Image
Methods to locate install.img  
stage2=cdrom yes yes yes yes yes no
stage2=http://server/path yes yes yes yes yes no
stage2=ftp://[user:passwd@]server/path yes yes yes yes yes no
stage2=nfs: yes yes yes yes yes no
stage2=hd: yes yes yes yes yes no
askmethod yes yes yes yes yes no
Methods to locate packages

repo=http://server/path yes yes yes yes yes no
repo=ftp://[user:passwd@]server/path yes yes yes yes yes no
repo=nfs: yes yes yes yes yes no
repo=nfsiso: yes yes yes yes yes no
repo=hd: yes yes yes yes yes no
repo=hdiso: yes yes yes yes yes no
repo=livecd: no no no no no yes
Methods to locate kickstart file

Methods to determine display device

Methods to choose kickstart device  
ksdevice=link yes yes yes yes yes no
ksdevice=bootif yes yes yes yes yes no
ksdevice=eth0 yes yes yes yes yes no
ksdevice=AA:BB:CC:DD:EE:FF yes yes yes yes yes no
Methods to activate network device  
ip=dhcp yes yes yes yes yes no
ip=a.b.c.d yes yes yes yes yes no
dns= yes yes yes yes yes no
gateway= yes yes yes yes yes no
netmask= yes yes yes yes yes no

step 3

Set priorities for each test. The test drivers will support the tests with high priority.

Colour Explanation
yes supported and default (high priority)
yes supported (medium priority)
yes supported (low priority)
no unsupported configuration
unknown unknown

step 4

Identify test drivers that trigger off of those events

  • URL install source available
    • url_install.py
  • DVD image(s) available
    • iso_sanity.py
    • dvd_install.py
  • CD image(s) available
    • iso_sanity.py
    • cd_install.py

Step 5

Write test drivers using requirements gathered in steps #2,#3,#4

Step 6

Write kickstart files to exercise the tests identified in step#4
