Bare Metal Certification Process

4.3. Certification Requirements

Partners are expected to follow the Red Hat OpenStack Hardware Workflow Guide. However, additional details for the certification requirements include:

  • The system under test (SUT) must already be certified; therefore,
  • The tests must run on a previously certified server, and
  • All of the tests prescribed in the test plan must be executed in a single run

If you have a failed test, take the corrective action and retest all of the tests in a single run. Open a support case if necessary for guidance.
