Disk Surface Test - where are the results after testing?
Started using Fog last week and love it. I’ve learned a lot from Tom Elliot’s posts and have been able to answer all my questions and or issues by simply searching. Here is one I could not find any info on. I ran a Disk Surface Test (Task Management, List All Hosts, Advanced Gear Icon, Disk Surface Test).
The test ran, however after it was completed (or so I assume) the machine booted into windows. I ran it on a machine with no issues to test how it worked but could not find where the data -pass or fail- ends up on the server?
I searched but could not find an answer to this. I thought a lot of the features on there were useful but just need to know the final result without having to be near the machine to find out from the PXE screen.
Ah Okay. I thought I was missing something. I take care of multiple locations so walking a user through getting to the network boot screen is easier than traveling to work on it there or pick it up if I suspect something. Thanks for the fast reply Tom!
The reason you can’t find anything is because there is currently nothing to find. There isn’t a log or anything that collects this data and I haven’t been overly concerned about creating a report for this. I do understand the want but I see the disk surface test as a tool where you suspect there is a problem with the system and are performing the tests within a more appropriate environment where it can be watched for errors. That’s not to say it wouldn’t be a good idea to create some sort of storage for these items, I just haven’t done it…yet.
