Issue Description
SoftRAID (onboard RAID) in Huawei servers.
Solution
SoftRAID is a simplified RAID solution. Huawei servers use Intel PCH to provide six SATA signals and use the LSIMegaRAID software solution. SoftRAID supports RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10. Only SATA and SSD disks support SoftRAID.
Only RH2265H V2, RH2285H V2, and RH2288H V2 servers support SoftRAID. You need to enable SoftRAID on the BIOS after choosing Advanced > IDE Configuration > HDC Configure As.

If external RAID cards, such as 2208 and 2308, are used to provide SoftRAID, you only need to install the RAID controller card and connect the SAS cable without any setting on the BIOS.
