The HOST POST (hpost) application is responsible for probing, testing, and
configuring the hardware of a Sun Fire[TM] 12K-25K domain, preparing it for use by the OpenBoot[TM] PROM and the Solaris[TM] Operating Environment (Solaris[TM] OS).

The Sun Fire 12K/15K/20K/25K platform's /opt/SUNWSMS/bin/hpost executable houses both the power-on self-test(POST) as well as the necessary logic involved
in sequencing POST's operations.
