Configuring the BIOS

This topic describes how to configure the basic input/output system (BIOS) for the CH225 V3.

Scenarios

Remotely configure the BIOS for the CH225 V3 by using the HMM Web management software. In this document, CH225 V3 is also referred to as the compute node.

You need to set the following configuration items:

  • Compute node boot mode.
  • PXE boot order of network adapters.
  • BIOS password.

For details about other configuration items, see the Huawei Server Grantley Platform BIOS Parameter Reference.

NOTE:
  • Ensure that the password complexity check is enabled. The password complexity check is enabled by default.
  • For security purposes, change the initial password upon the first login, and then change the password regularly.

Prerequisites

Conditions

The compute node is powered on.

Data

Data preparation is not required for this operation.

Workflow

Figure 5-9 shows the process for configuring the BIOS.

Procedure

  1. Reboot the server.

    1. Choose on the menu bar that is in the upper part of the real-time compute node desktop.
    2. Select Forced System Reset.

      The message "Are you sure to perform this operation?" is displayed.

    3. Click Yes.

      The compute node is rebooted.

    4. Press Del on the BIOS startup screen shown in Figure 5-10 to start the BIOS Setup Utility.
      NOTE:
      • Press Delete to go to the BIOS Setup Utility screen is displayed.

        From a remote serial port, you can press F4 to go to the BIOS Setup Utility screen.

      • Press F11 to go the boot manager screen for selecting boot options.

        From a remote serial port, you can press F3 to go the boot manager screen for selecting boot options.

      • Press F12 to boot from the network.

    5. During the startup, a dialog box is displayed asking you to enter the password, as shown in Figure 5-11.
      NOTE:
      • During system boot, you can press F5 to select the keyboard type (French or American keyboard). The default BIOS password is Huawei12#$ for the French or American keyboard and is Huawei12£$ for the English keyboard.
      • Set the supervisor password at the first login. For details, see 4. You are advised to regularly change the supervisor password for security purposes.
      • After you enter the supervisor password, the screen in supervisor mode is displayed. The server is locked after three consecutive failures with wrong passwords. You can restart the server to unlock it.

    6. Enter the password and press Enter.

  2. Set the server boot mode.

    1. Choose Boot > Boot Type and press Enter.

      The Boot screen is displayed, as shown in Figure 5-12.

      Figure 5-12 Boot
    2. In the displayed dialog box, select Dual Boot Type, Legacy Boot Type, or UEFI Type, and press Enter.
      NOTE:
      • The default boot mode is Legacy.
      • If the boot type is changed after the OS has been installed in Legacy or UEFI mode, the OS will be inaccessible. To access the OS, you need to change the boot type to that used when the OS is installed. If the OS needs to be reinstalled, select the Legacy or UEFI mode based on actual situation.
      • If the capacity of the target hard drive or RAID group is greater than 2 TB, set Boot Type to UEFI Boot.
      • If the OS is to be installed on an NVMe hard drive, you can only set Boot Type to UEFI Boot.
      • If multiple boot devices are configured, you are advised to set Boot Type to UEFI Boot because certain boot devices may fail to boot if Boot Type is set to Legacy Boot. If you still want to set Boot Type to Legacy Boot, then disable redirection for certain serial ports or disable PXE for certain NICs based on the services in use. For details, see Setting PXE for a NIC and Setting Serial Port Redirection in the Huawei Server Grantley Platform BIOS Parameter Reference.
    3. Choose Boot Type Order and press Enter.

      The Boot Type Order screen is displayed.

      NOTE:

      The default boot sequence is as follows: Hard Disk Drive, CD/DVD-ROM Drive, PXE, and finally Others.

    4. Select a boot option, and press F5 or F6 to change the boot priority.
      • To move a boot option down, press F5.
      • To move a boot option up, press F6.
      NOTE:

      The one at the top of the boot option list is the first boot option, and the one at the bottom is the last boot option.

    5. Press F10.

      The Exit Saving changes? dialog box is displayed.

    6. Select Yes to save the settings.

  3. Set the PXE boot sequence of network adapters.

    NOTE:

    You can set the boot priorities when there is more than one device for a boot mode. This document uses PXE boot as an example. For details about how to set the boot device priorities of other boot modes, see HUAWEI Server Grantley Platform BIOS Parameter Reference.

    1. Choose Boot > Legacy.

      The Boot Device Priority screen is displayed, as shown in Figure 5-13.

      Figure 5-13 Boot Device Priority
    2. Choose PXE and press Enter.

      The PXE screen is displayed, as shown in Figure 5-14.

      Figure 5-14 PXE
    3. Select a boot option and press F5 or F6 to change the display order.

      The display order of the boot options is the boot order.

      • To move a boot option down, press F5.
      • To move a boot option up, press F6.
      NOTE:

      For details about the mapping between NICs and switch modules, see E9000 Blade Server Mezz Module-Switch Module Interface Mapping Tool . It is recommended that the network port that corresponds to the external PXE server be set to the first boot option.

  4. Set the BIOS password.

    1. Select the Security tab.

      The Security screen is displayed, as shown in Figure 5-15.

      NOTE:
      • The default BIOS password is Huawei12#$ for the French or American keyboard and is Huawei12£$ for the English keyboard.
      • The supervisor password must be a string of 8 to 16 characters, including special characters (including spaces) and at least two types of the following characters: uppercase letters, lowercase letters, and digits.
      • A new password cannot be the same as one of the previous five passwords.
