Inspecting Servers

Inspecting Servers


  • Obtain the customer's permission before inspecting servers, and obtain the customer's written permission before modifying server configurations, or powering servers on or off.
  • Before inspecting servers, obtain the iMana 200 or iBMC IP address, MM910 IP address, and password of the root user for each server to be inspected. After inspecting servers, advise the customer to change the password of the root user as soon as possible.

Inspecting Indicators

The front and rear panels of Huawei servers have various indicators and buttons, such as the UID button/indicator, health indicator, network port status indicators, fan module indicator, and power button/indicator. You can observe the indicators on a server to determine the server status. For details about the indicator statuses and handling measures, see Checking Indicators to Locate FaultsChecking Indicators to Locate Faults.

Indicators on the Front Panel
  • Health indicator
  • Power button/indicator
  • Drive indicators
  • NIC status indicator (on the front NICs or on the MM610 or MM620)
Indicators on the Rear Panel

Using uMate to Perform Health Inspection

Use uMate to inspect server health. uMate provides the following functions:

  • Supports PMI of Huawei rack servers, high-density servers, TaiShan servers, and the management modules of E6000 and E9000 blade servers, and provides inspection reports.
  • Supports PMI of mainstream SUSE, Red Hat, CentOS, and VMware operating systems, and provides inspection reports.
  • Supports batch log collection of BMCs, blade server management modules, and mainstream SUSE, Red Hat, and CentOS operating systems.
  • Upgrades the firmware of Huawei V2 and V3 rack servers, high-density servers, TaiShan servers, and E6000 blade servers in batches.
  • Upgrades the firmware bundles of the E9000 with the active management module.
  • Supports power control, BIOS configuration, and BMC configuration for rack servers, high-density servers, TaiShan servers, and E6000 and E9000 blade servers in batches.
  • Configures E9000 management modules in batches.

Inspection and log collection do not modify data, collect service data, or affect services, and will delete the collection scripts and files when finished.
