Key steps taken in testing process:

  • Certification Test Environment Setup – ‘Preparing test bed’ typically means configuring three VMware ESX hosts (TriggerHost, TestHost1 & TestHost2) and their   virtual machines.

     
1. Creating numerous VMs
2. Customized configuration of VMs
3. Installing different OS on each of them
4. Post OS install Configurations to the VM’s

  • Executing VMware recommended tests – VMware Workbench is a suite of test cases recommended by VMware which run in an automated fashion. Calsoft developed automated test setup triggers the VMware Workbench. 
  • Uploading logs to VMware for compatibility analysis – VMware Workbench on a successful run will generate logs. Calsoft developed automation uploads these logs to the VMware website for compatibility analysis.
