Version 8.0 testing

This document lists tests that we need to do to get version 8.0 to a final release. It's an attempt to invite as many testers as possible and to coordinate our testing work.

The document should be used as Work In Progress so please feel free to add additional test scenarios and comments.

All tests here should be based on the latest available version '8.0 beta 7'. (with updates including smeupdates-testing you have a preview of a work in progress '8.0RC1')

In general:

  • check the related logfile(s) for each test
  • don't hesitate to raise a bug if there is an issue or something suspicious but check the Bugtracker before whether this might already be reported
  • A list of currently reported bugs for SME 8.0 is here: bugzilla matrix

Test guidelines

The purpose of the page is mostly to verify features are working, you can list a bug number if you like but we don't intend to duplicate the tracking provided by bugzilla:

Executive Summary

In general everything works as well as in SME 7, if not better.

Verification

Create a test environment, either virtually or with spare hardware. Install the latest release, add some test users/ibays/domains/websites, send some internal e-mails, copy some files to/from ibays, perform a backup and restore. Perform as many functions that you can based on your knowledge and test environment abilities. Play and have fun  :)

The scenario's should be as complex as needed, but also as simple as possible, testing one unique feature where possible.

For instance creating an ibay could mean something like this, perhaps even incomplete as I am doing this from the top of my head:

  • log in in server-manager
  • create ibay
  • test for directory created (-f /home/e-smith/ibays/ibayname)
  • check for account (ibayname) created
  • check for group (ibayname) created
  • analyze log for errors/exceptions

but also (and that is the most work mostly) test exceptions (names too long, starting with a number, containing a _, as well as all other exceptions):

  • log in in server-manager
  • create ibay with invalid name
  • check the error in the server-manager screen
  • check no account (ibayname) is created
  • check no group (ibayname) is created
  • check that the error is present in the log file

Test Schedule and Header codes

A sample test schedule is provided below. Check one feature at a time and add comments. We will use a shorthand in the header line so we can check progress quickly. The test list below starts with no headers since we start afresh. The intention is for testers to update this document to reflect their testing, thus avoiding duplication.

  • header blank - unchecked
  • header ? - questions, or more to do
  • header bug - there is a bug
  • header Pass - means the section has been tested and has passed

Some sample comments have been left from previous work during testing of sme7.0b4 for information since they outline useful procedures, please add your own comments as applicable.

Installation

Installation types

Different installation scenarios re. software RAID, LVM and NOSPARE usage, etc. Note that you need to test each scenario separately, meaning reinstalling from scratch for each test - you cannot modify a Raid configuration after a system has been installed.

Check this for each configuration:

/var/log/messages
server-console, item 5
cat /proc/mdstat (which is the same as server-console, item 5;)
  • RAID1 nolvm spares=2

Comments:

  • RAID1 "nolvm"

Comments: Installation was RAID1, nolvm with one physical disk only; adding second disk still to be tested

  • RAID5 (with lvm) spares=0

Comments:

  • RAID5 nolvm spares=2

Comments:

  • RAID6 (with lvm) spare=1 multipart

Comments:

  • RAIDx "nolvm"

Comments:

Upgrading

Upgrade from older versions

CD upgrade from a clean SME7.5.1

Installation to SME8.0RC1 cannot be tested until an ISO of SME8.0RC1 is available.

  • server only

Comment: i.e."This server is currently in server-only mode and port forwarding is not possible."

Proxy settings

Mail

  • Smtp proxy enabled

Comment: i.e. Test with Thunderbird client - Email delivery works and the headers clearly show that the local smtp server has been used for the delivery rather the smtp that was setup in the email client

  • Smtp proxy disabled

Comment: i.e. Follow up test to above with the same Thunderbird configuration - this time the intended, external smtp server has been used for the delivery and NOT the local smtp server.

Date and time

'Set Date and Time' manually works

'Configure Network Time Server' works if you enter a valid time server

Workgroup

Domain controller

Now also working for windows 7 PC's

  • PDC - setup Primary Domain Controller

Suggested steps:

  • join PC to domain (as user 'admin') and test domain user logon on that PC
  • join (another) PC to domain (as a different user from group 'Domain Admins', NOT user admin)

Comments: The user 'michael' is part of that group:

db accounts show domain-admin-group 
domain-admin-group=group
   Description=Domain Admins
   Gid=5010
   Members=admin,michael
   Uid=5010

Comments: i.e. log extract from /var/log/messages for the latest join:

  • domain user password change via Ctrl-Alt-Del

Comments: i.e. several combinations tested, incl. invalid combinations (e.g. password too short); successfully changed; case sensitivity tested; testing was done with the following setting in place:

db configuration show passwordstrength
passwordstrength=configuration
   Admin=none
   Ibays=none
   Users=none

Might need more testing with better password strength.

Workgroup server

  • Connect to samba share

Roaming profiles

  • Test with WinXP Pro AND Win7 Pro clients

Comments:

Directory

Check the following:

  • Directory (LDAP) access
  • Test access from various email clients, list client, platform, Operating system, local and or external:

In example:

Webmail (list address book contents via string like "mich" shows all Michael(s))
Thunderbird LDAP test on local network

Printers

Attached/created LTP,USB and network printer; Printing test page:

  • USB printer
  • LTP printer
  • Network printer

Hostnames

set a hostname to a remote server works

set a hostname to self works

set hostname for other host on the local network - passed (tested with several other hosts)

Domains

  • 2nd domain added, web and email works
  • Test all DNS options

Email

Access

Test functionality for the following:

  • webmail
  • pop3(s)

Comments:

  • imap(s)

Comments: i.e. Intensive, ongoing testing with imap & imaps access from LAN PCs and external

  • check: /var/log/pop3(s)/current
  • check: /var/log/imap(s)/current

Filtering

Reception

Delivery

Antivirus

Clam/email integration

  • Check: /var/log/qmail/current
  • Check: /var/log/spamd/current
  • Check: /var/log/qpsmtpd/current
  • Check: /var/log/clamd/current
  • Check: /var/log/clamd/smeserver-clamscan.log
  • Check: email headers

Comments: i.e. Server runs in a semi production state - as a home server with various email accounts for family members (static IP, registered domain name). Have done regular checks for quite some time and there is nothing unusual or unexpected in all email logs. Incl. email header checks for spam recognition and filtering.

  • Check regular Clam scans
  • Enable regular scanning in server-manager and check results (email to admin)

Comments: i.e. Runs weekly without problems, emails to admin working.
