Chapter 5. Leveraging certification

download PDF

Leveraging allows you to request credit for previous successful certification tests when similar or substantially similar BMCs are used across a family of server systems. It is based on your internal qualification testing of the specific BMC on each system, confirming that any variations are not material and the solution matches a previously certified one.

Leveraging can reduce the amount of official testing needed for certification. You can request leveraging when the solution includes a previously certified BMC with the same firmware branch and equal or fewer features.


It is your responsibility to verify that any differences in BMC-to-server interaction do not affect the certification.
