RH2288H V2 hard disks

1

The hard disks of the RH2288H V2 are used for data storage and are hot-swappable. The server supports the following hard disk configurations:
? RH2288H V2 (8 hard disks): eight 2.5-inch SAS HDDs, SATA HDDs, or SSDs
? RH2288H V2 (14 hard disks): twelve 3.5-inch SAS or SATA HDDs at the front and two 2.5-inch SAS, SATA HDDs, or SSDs at the rear
Note:
You can install a customized 3.5-inch hard disk tray to support twelve 2.5-inch hard disk at the front.
? RH2288H V2 (26 hard disks): twenty-four 2.5-inch SAS HDDs, SATA HDDs, or SSDs at the front and two 2.5-inch SAS, SATA HDDs, or SSDs at the rear

Maximum capacity of the RH2288H V2 with eight 2.5-inch hard disks:
? SAS HDDs: 9.6 TB
? SATA HDDs: 8 TB
? SSDs: 4.8 TB

Maximum capacity of the RH2288H V2 with twelve 3.5-inch SAS or SATA HDDs at the front and two 2.5-inch SAS, SATA HDDs, or SSDs at the rear:
? SAS HDDs: 16.8 TB
? SATA HDDs: 50 TB

Maximum capacity of the RH2288H V2 with twenty-four 2.5-inch SAS HDDs, SATA HDDs, or SSDs at the front and two 2.5-inch SAS, SATA HDDs, or SSDs at the rear
? SAS HDDs: 31.2 TB
? SATA HDDs: 26 TB
? SSDs: 14.4 TB
Note:
The maximum storage capacity of a server varies with the capacity of a hard disk.

SAS, SATA HDDs, or SSDs can be used on the same server.

The server supports RAID 0, 1, 10, 5, 50, 6, and 60. It protects cache data from power failures, and supports RAID state migration, RAID configuration memory, self-diagnosis, and web-based remote configuration.

The mainboard can be configured with a SAS adapter or SAS RAID controller card (with a maximum of 1 GB cache) to improve hard disk storage performance and ensure user data security.

The RAID controller card does not occupy a standard PCIe slot, improving system scalability.

Server boot disk
ServiceCD2.0 is an intelligent boot disk for servers. It provides OS installation and RAID configuration functions. ServiceCD2.0 has the following features: - Provides wizard-based installation of OSs, such as Windows Server, SUSE, Red Hat, and VMware ESXi and installs device drivers based on the hardware detected. - Provides a graphical user interface to help you complete the installation. - Supports configuration of a variety of RAID controller cards through a unified GUI. You can use the boot disk (ServiceCD) delivered with the server to perform the installation. You can also download the iso file of the boot disk (ServiceCD) and perform the installation over remote control. For details about How do I download the iso and install the OS, see: http://support.huawei.com/ecommunity/bbs/10179917.html

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.
