The embedded system diagnostics provides options for particular devices or device groups allowing you to:
  • Run tests automatically or in an interactive mode.
  • Repeat the tests.
  • Display or save test results.
  • Run thorough tests to introduce additional test options to provide extra information about one or more failed devices.
  • View status messages that inform you the tests are completed successfully.
  • View error messages that inform you of problems encountered during testing.
NOTE:Some tests for specific devices require user interaction. Always ensure that you are present at the computer terminal when the diagnostic tests are performed.
