  • Automating BurnInTest

    Hello, We use BurnInTest Pro and have a current licence/support agreement.

    We run this software through PXE on test machines, which uses WinPE.

    At present this simply boots into BurnInTest, where we load the existing saved test profile and hit go.

    Once the test is finished we insert a USB flash drive and save the report, which is in HTML format. We save this file the serial number of the machine (which is in the format such as 00001234). We then transfer this certificate via USB to our server and send it to our customer.

    What we want to do is automate this - ideally we'd like it to do the following;

    1) Load via PXE same as current
    2) Once BurnInTest loads like it does not, ideally popup asking for the machine serial number. The operator would enter this and hit OK. This should then start a specific test - no user interaction required.
    3) It runs the test (which is usually 24 hours) and once passed it should save the report, with the filename in the serial number (e.g. 00001234.HTML). I can probably figure out an "open" network share to map to the test environment so it can save this on to the server rather than inserting USB drives.

    Is what I am asking above possible?

    Thank you.

    You can use the "-M" command line argument to automatically display the Report information dialog when BurnInTest is started, this allows entry of a serial number.

    The serial number can then be used in the log name prefix of the logging options by using the "%REPORTSERIAL%" flag.
