Installing OS on a server
Use the Huawei Server Compatibility Checker (http://support.huawei.com/onlinetoolsweb/ftca/en) to check the OS supported by the server. For details about the OS installation methods (using ServiceCD, DVD-ROM drive, image, and PXE), see OS Installation Guide. For details about the OS installation cases (including centOS, Citrix, Debian, Fedora, FreeBSD, Kylin, Oracle Linux, RedFlag, RedHat, Rocky, Solaris, SUSE, Ubuntu, VMware ESXi, and Windows), see http://support.huawei.com/huaweiconnect/enterprise/thread-286397.html.

Whether the IP address of the IPMI interface can be customized during the deployment of OceanStor 9000
Yes, but you are advised to plan consistent IP addresses for the IPMI interface of each node for the ease of remote node management. In addition, you are advised to plan all IP addresses in a management network segment that is usually a private network segment. The private network segment has no requirements on the number of IP addresses and allows requests for application.

Functions of management ports in OceanStor 9000 V100R001C01
Management ports in OceanStor 9000 V100R001C01 include NIC0 and IPMI ports. NIC0 ports are used for logging in to system management software, as well as configuring, maintaining, and monitoring the system. IPMI ports on each node are used for hardware system management, including viewing hardware component status and remotely powering on or off nodes. The entire system uses only NIC0 ports on the first three nodes, and one floating management IP address (floating on the NIC0 ports on the three nodes) is planned. An IP address is separately planned for the IPMI port on each node.
