Installing an SD Card

Installing an SD Card

Install an SD card to replace the original one.

One or two SD cards can be installed on a server and are monitored by the iBMC. After the iBMC initialization is complete, two SD cards are configured as a RAID 1 array when being detected. You can view the information about the SD cards and RAID 1 array on the iBMC WebUI by choosing System Info > Other, but cannot modify the configuration or manually configure them. The two SD cards do not work in active/standby mode and data synchronization between them may result in data overwriting. It is recommended that you ensure that the SD card to be added contains no data, avoiding data synchronization exceptions.


After replacing the faulty SD card, wait for at least 60 minutes for the RAID 1 rebuild to complete before performing other operations.


  1. Wear an ESD wrist strap. For details, see Safety Instructions.
  2. Determine the position of the SD card to be replaced. See Figure 7-101.SD card 1 is above the SD card mezzanine card, and SD card 2 is below the SD card mezzanine card.

    Figure 7-101 SD card position

  3. Remove the SD card to be replaced. For details, see Removing an SD Card.
  4. Take the spare SD card out of its ESD bag.


    The spare microSD card cannot contain any data.

    • If the server has only one microSD card, and the OS is installed on the card, migrate the important data on the SD card to another storage device before the replacement.
    • If the server has two microSD cards, install the new microSD card in the same slot as the replaced one.

  5. If the SD2 card needs to be installed, you need to remove the SD card first. For operation details, see Removing an SD Card.
  6. Insert the SD card into the mezzanine card. See Figure 7-102.


    If the server has two microSD cards, replacement of one of the microSD cards will be followed by RAID rebuilding. After the rebuilding is complete, power on the server.

  7. After the SD2 card is installed, install the SD card mezzanine card.

    1. Align the mezzanine card connector with the port on the mainboard, and then press the mezzanine card downwards to secure it to the mainboard. See step (1) in Figure 7-103.
      Figure 7-103 Installing a mezzanine SD card

    2. Tighten the two screws. See step (2) in Figure 7-103.

  8. Install the chassis cover. For details, see Installing the Chassis Cover.
  9. Install the 5288 V3. For details, see Installing the Server.
  10. Connect all internal cables such as power and network cables. For details, see Connecting External Cables.
  11. Power on the 5288 V3. For details, see Powering On the Server.
