Installing OS on a server

0

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.

Reason for an OS installation failure
Server OS installation failures may be caused by the following: 1. The RAID array is not set as the boot option. 2. The size of the partition for OS installation exceeds 2 TB. 3. The ServiceCD is not used for installation. 4. The installation file is damaged.

Installing the OS on a server with one hard disk
If the server is configured with an LSI1064/1068/2308/3008 RAID card, at least two hard disks are required for configuring RAID. If there is only one hard disk, you can install the OS on the hard disk without configuring RAID. If the server is configured with an LSI1078/2208/3108 or SoftRAID, the single disk must be configured with RAID0 before you install the OS.

Quantity of OSs required for installing OSs on multiple Huawei servers
The following rules explain the quantity of OSs required for installing OSs on multiple servers, regardless of the server vendor. If licenses are not involved, an OS can be installed on multiple servers. If licenses are involved, there are three cases: 1. An OS can be installed only on one server. 2. An OS can be installed on multiple servers, but the number of login users is restricted. 3. An OS can be installed for only one CPU. This is usually the case for midrange computers and virtual machines.
