If a server is nominated for verification testing, do all configurations within the product family need to be tested? Follow

No. Although all configurations per ENERGY STAR Servers Version 2.1 Eligibility Criteria do need to be tested when certifying a product family, only one ENERGY STAR configuration is to be selected for verification testing by the certification body (CB). If a product is not obtained through off-the-shelf retail, the model chosen should be one built for a customer (or built identical to one for a customer) such that a partner does not supply a unit solely for the purpose of verification testing. It is the responsibility of the CB, as opposed to EPA or the partner, to determine what specific configurations are available for review and to choose a product for review.
