Installing an NVMe PCIe SSD

Installing an NVMe PCIe SSD

  • You do not need to power off the RH5885 V3 before installing an NVMe PCIe SSD.
  • Wait until the hot insertion of an NVMe PCIe SSD is complete before you install another one.
  • The interval between the insertion operations of two NVMe PCIe SSDs must be longer than 30 seconds.
  • You have obtained a list of all operating systems (OSs) supported by NVMe PCIe SSDs. For details, see Compatibility.

Procedure

  1. Wear an ESD wrist strap or ESD gloves. For details, see Safety Instructions.
  2. Take the spare NVMe PCIe SSD out of its ESD bag.
  3. Determine the position of the NVMe PCIe SSD on the RH5885 V3. See Figure 5-17.

    Figure 5-17 NVMe PCIe SSD position

  4. Install the NVMe PCIe SSD driver.

    For Windows Server 2012, you need to install the NVMe PCIe SSD driver for the system to detect NVMe PCIe SSDs. For other compatible OSs, you can simply use the drivers that come with the OSs.

    • Download the NVMe PCIe SSD driver package from https://downloadcenter.intel.com/en-us/download/23929.
    • Copy the driver package to the OS, decompress the package, and run the SetupNVMe.exe file in the Installer64 folder to install the driver.
    • After the driver is installed, rescan for hardware changes to detect NVMe PCIe SSDs.
    NOTE:

    The recommended driver package is Intel Windows NVMe driver 1.2.0.1002-x64.zip.

  5. Install the NVMe PCIe SSD.

    Install the NVMe PCIe SSD on Windows.

    1. Gently insert the NVMe PCIe SSD into the slot. For details, see Installing a SATA HDD, SAS HDD, or SSD.

      The green indicator for the NVMe PCIe SSD is off, and the yellow indicator blinks at 2 Hz. Then both the green indicator and the yellow indicator are off for 30 seconds.

    2. When the green indicator for the NVMe PCIe SSD becomes steady on, check the SSD status on the OS.
    3. If the NVMe PCIe SSD cannot be detected, open Device Manager and click Scan for hardware changes.
    4. Check the SSD status on the OS.

    Install the NVMe PCIe SSD on Linux.

    1. Gently insert the NVMe PCIe SSD into the slot. For details, see Installing a SATA HDD, SAS HDD, or SSD.

      The green indicator for the NVMe PCIe SSD is off, and the yellow indicator blinks at 2 Hz. Then both the green indicator and the yellow indicator are off for 30 seconds.

    2. When the green indicator for the NVMe PCIe SSD becomes steady on, check the SSD status on the OS.

  6. To install a front bezel, see the operation procedure in (Optional) Installing the Front Bezel.
  7. Install an OS on the NVMe PCIe SSD.

    • OS installation description
      • When you install Windows Server 2012 on an NVMe PCIe SSD, load the NVMe PCIe SSD driver for the system to detect the SSD before proceeding with OS installation. When you install another compatible OS on an NVMe PCIe SSD, the NVMe PCIe SSD driver is installed along with the OS.
      • The Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) mode is required when you install an OS on an NVMe PCIe SSD.
    • Set the UEFI mode.
      • Press Del upon server startup to access the BIOS. (The default BIOS password is Huawei12#$ for the American keyboard, Huqzei&é34 for the French keyboard, and Huawei12£$ for the English keyboard.)
      • Open the boot configuration screen and set Boot Type to UEFI Boot Type.
      • Press F10 to save the setting and exit.
    • Install Windows Server 2012 on the NVMe PCIe SSD.
      • Set the UEFI mode.
      • Download the NVMe PCIe SSD driver for Windows Server 2012, and generate an ISO or IMG file for the driver.
      • Install the OS. If the NVMe PCIe SSD cannot be detected when the system scans for the target installation device, mount the NVMe PCIe SSD driver file by using the virtual DVD drive or floppy disk drive (FDD) on the iBMC WebUI.
      • Load the NVMe PCIe SSD driver on the installation screen. After the NVMe PCIe SSD is detected, proceed with the OS installation.
