Operation Scenario

If you decide to use Huawei's NVMe driver after reading Driver Information, install it by referring to this section before using the ES3000 V3 for the first time.

  • If you install multiple ES3000 V3s on a server, you need to install the driver only once.
  • The ES3000 V3 tool is incompatible with the NVMe driver built in the Windows OS. Ensure that you have installed Huawei's NVMe driver before using the tool.
  • To install Windows on the ES3000 V3, see Installing an OS on the ES3000 V3.


Before installing the ES3000 V3 driver, check that:

  • You have correctly installed the ES3000 V3 on the server.
  • You have downloaded the driver package and verified its integrity. For details, see Verifying the Upgrade Package Integrity.
  • You have uploaded the driver package to the server by using WinSCP or other software.


    Select an operation based on the OS type.

    • For Windows Server 2012 R2, go to 8.
    • For Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows Server 2012, go to 1.

    Check whether the SSD driver is provided by the OS.

    1. Log in to the OS as an administrator.
    2. Right-click Computer and choose Properties from the shortcut menu. The System window is displayed, as shown in Figure 3-10.

      The following are three possible cases:

      • If the device name is Standard NVM Express Controller, the device uses the NVMe driver provided by the OS.
      • If the device name is Huawei ES3000V3 storage controller, the device uses Huawei's SSD driver.
      • The device does not have a driver.

    4. Determine the next step based on the driver type.

      • If the driver is provided by the OS, go to 5.
      • If the driver is provided by Huawei, uninstall the driver by referring to Uninstalling the Driver in Windows and go to 8.
      • If the device does not have a driver, go to 8.

    5. Choose Start > Control Panel > Programs and Features.
