Installing the ES3000 V3 Driver in ESXi

Operation Scenario

You need to install the ES3000 V3 driver on the server before using the ES3000 V3 for the first time.



Before installing the ES3000 V3 driver, check that:

  • You have correctly installed the ES3000 V3 on the server.
  • You have downloaded the ES3000 V3 driver package to the server, and verified the package integrity.
  • You have uploaded the driver package to the server by using WinSCP or other software.


  1. Log in to the OS as an administrator or a member of the administrator group.
  2. Install the ES3000 V3 driver.

    The following procedure assumes that the driver package is in the /tmp directory, and the driver package name is hiodriver-

    Run the following command to install the ES3000 V3 driver package:

    esxcli software vib install -v driver package in a directory

    The following is an example command:

    esxcli software vib install -v /tmp/hiodriver-

    • In the driver file name, is the driver version. The actual driver version may differ.
    • Enter a complete directory after -v.
    • If the "Could not find a trusted signer" error occurs indicating that the driver version is not certified by ESXi IOVP, add --no-sig-check at the end of the command to skip signature check.

  3. After the driver is installed, run the reboot command to restart the OS.
  4. After the restart, run the esxcli software vib list | grep hiodriver command. If the following command output is displayed, the driver is installed properly.

    [root@esxi113:~] esxcli software vib list | grep hiodriverhiodriver Huawei ESXiCertified 2016-01-04

  5. If the SSD device has been inserted into the server, run the lspci | grep "Huawei ES3000 V3" command. If the device is displayed, it is detected by the OS.

    [root@esxi113:~] lspci | grep "Huawei ES3000 V3"

  6. Run the vmkload_mod -l | grep hiodriver command to check whether the driver is loaded.

    If the command output is similar to the following, the device is found, which indicates that the driver is loaded.

    [root@esxi113:~] vmkload_mod -l | grep hiodriver
    hiodriver          2    112
    • If yes, no further action is required.
