Using a one-click operating system installation disk as a standard installation disk

13

The following uses the IBM one-click operating system installation disk as an example to describe how to use a one-click operating system installation disk as a standard installation disk.
The procedure is as follows:
Ensure that the RAID configuration is complete.
Insert the SUSE Linux 11 SP1 one-click installation CD-ROM and restart the server.
Wait about 5 minutes. The system restarts, and the SUSE Linux Enterprise Server window is displayed.
Use the arrow keys to select the installation mode (install linux for 7 hard disks for example). Press the Backspace key to delete the contents after Boot Options.
Press Enter. The subsequent installation procedure is the same as that for installing the operating system using a standard operating system installation disk.

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.

Solution if an error is reported if you install the multipathing software using a disk on a device running the Linux operating system
Solution if an error is reported if you install the multipathing software using a disk on a device running the Linux operating system: Check whether the installation script of the multipathing software /home/linux/Packages contains an uppercase P. If it contains an uppercase P, an error is reported because the directory name of disks cannot contain uppercase letters. In this case, you need to copy the upgrade package from the disk to the local disk.

Installing hard disks for the USG6000 series
For the USG6000 (1 U device), perform as follows to install the hard disk combination SM-HDD-SAS300G-B for the first time: 1. Loosen screws on the filler panel and remove the filler panel. 2. Hold the two side surfaces of a hard disk unit, push the hard disk combination into the slot along the guide rails until it is well seated into the slot, and fasten screws on the two sides of the hard disk unit. 3. After that, run the display disk information command in the user view. If Filesystem Status is Mounted in the command output, the hard disk is successfully installed. For the USG6000 (3 U device), perform as follows to install the hard disk unit SM-HDD-SAS300G-A for the first time: 1. Remove the filler panel from a hard disk slot. 2. Hold the handlers of the tray and push the tray along the guide rails inside the hard disk slot till the tray panel aligns with the panel of the device. 3. Press the tray handler inwardly to restore the tray. 4. If there are two hard disks, repeat steps 1 to 3 to install the other hard disk. 5. After the installation completes, check as follows: -If a single hard disk exists, run the display disk information command in the user view. If Filesystem Status is Mounted in the command output, the hard disk is successfully installed. -If two hard disks exist, run the display disk information command in the user view to check whether the Filesystem Status value is Un-Mounted and the DiskRaidMode value is INACTIVE. Then, in the system view, run the reset raid primary-disk disk-id command to create a RAID group using disk-id as the primary disk for data synchronization. The synchronization process will take several hours. During data synchronization, other services can be used, but the hard disks do not record real-time logs for the services. After data synchronization completes, the hard disks automatically start to work. You can run the display disk information command in the user view on the next day to check whether Filesystem Status is Mounted. If no, contact Huawei technical support personnel. When a hard disk is faulty, replace it. For details, see content relevant to replacing hard disks on the USG6000 series in the product documentation.

Method used to migrate data on one disk of a RAID group to other disks in the storage system
You can migrate data on one disk of a RAID group to other disks in the storage system as follows: When the disk status is Normal and you must migrate data on the disk to a hot spare disk, manually change the disk. Run the CLI command startdiskswap to migrate data on the faulty disk to a hot spare disk in the following format: startdiskswap -se faulty disk enclosure ID -ss faulty disk slot ID -te target disk enclosure ID -ts target disk slot For example, migrate data on the disk (1, 23) to the hot spare disk (1, 20) by running the following command: startdiskswap -se 1 -ss 23 -te 1 -ts 20
