WHQL: NDIStest reports issues with emulated pcNET-III cards
|Reported by:||Technologov||Owned by:|
Running WHQL tests is important, because it *significantly* improves emulation of devices correctness, and tests for potential problems. I strongly support testing of *all* VirtualBox devices for WHQL compatibility.
Host: Windows XP, VBox 3.2.0
Guest(s): 2 VMs of Windows XP, 1 CPU + pcNET-III card(s) + NDIStest 6.0 suite
pcNET-III drivers come with Windows, and are certified by Microsoft, but running NDIStest 6.0 WHQL test suite resulted in some errors.
tests, that failed:
BytesRead/Written 24 greater than buffer size.
Additionally, after about 15 minutes of tests, both VMs silently rebooted.
Unfortunately I don't have physical pcNET-III cards to test behavior on real computers.
This test suite is available from Microsoft.
