This patch, created against r17653, adds a new test to the Samba 4 build
system test suite. 'make wintest' tests Samba as a client against
Windows as a server, and Samba as a server against Windows as a client.
The output format is appropriate for running on the build farm, which
can be seen at
This framework runs as root without socket wrappers enabled. It uses
expect scripts to interact with a Windows server telnet session, and
perl along with VMware's vmperl and vix-perl API's to manage the VMWare
host and Windows virtual machine. In situations where a test fails, the
Windows VM is reloaded from a known good snapshot to ensure that the
next test runs against a clean environment.
In order to test this patch, a Windows virtual machine has to be setup
in VMWare server, preferably configured using the vm_setup.tar.gz
package in my SVN branch at svn.samba.org. I tested this patch using
There are a few things in my work that could use more attention.
Currently, the VMWare server needs to be configured to revert to its
snapshot on a power off event, rather than directly triggered using the
vix-perl api. As well, tighter integration with the Samba build farm is
possible, for example rather than formatting its own output, this
framework could work within the build farm testit() routine in
test_functions.sh. I plan to work on these areas in the near future, as
well as any which come up after.
