Reinstalling the Production Mirroring Software on a Storage Node

Reinstalling the Production Mirroring Software on a Storage Node


You have obtained the EulerLinux.x86_64.iso file by decompressing the package. For details, see .

You have obtained the EulerLinux.x86_64.iso file by decompressing the package. For details about how to obtain the package, see Preparing for Installation > Obtaining the Software Packages and Documents.


  1. See chapter Remotely Logging In to the iBMC Management Page of a Storage Node Through the Mgmt Port in this documentation to log in to a storage node.
  2. Choose Remote and select Remote Virtual Console (Shared Mode) under Integrated Remote Console. On the displayed Shared Mode dialog box, click OK and start the virtual KVM as prompted.


    Before opening the KVM, ensure that JRE has been installed in the local environment. If error information No JAVA 6.0 or Java 7.0 was found or information indicating that file KVM.jnlp needs to be downloaded is displayed when you open the KVM, JRE is not installed. Go to to download and install JRE 1.7 or a later version. For details, see the online help provided on the iBMC UI.

  3. Click the DVD-ROM drive icon , select Image File, and click Browse.
  4. In the displayed dialog box, select EulerLinux.x86_64.iso and click Connect, as shown in Figure 8-6.

  5. Click the Power Management icon and choose Forced System Reset. In the Select an Option dialog box, click Yes to restart a node.
  6. Optional: Configure RAID for the system disk.

    RAID has been configured for devices before delivery. This operation is performed only when failures such as RAID group failures occur. If you choose not to perform this step, go to 7 and take actions as instructed.

    Only administrators can perform this operation due to high risks.

    1. After the output in Figure 8-7 is displayed, wait about 35s until the output in Figure 8-8 is displayed. Then press Ctrl+C to go to the BIOS page of the SAS card.

      Press Ctrl+C quickly because the page stays for only about 3s.

    2. Enter the BIOS password (default password: Huawei12#$) and press Enter. A message prompting you to modify your password is displayed. Press Enter.

      • If you type an incorrect password three times, the system locks your account. In this case, you can click the Power Management icon, and choose Forced System Reset to restart the system.

      • For security purposes, you are advised to change the default password at your first login.

      • Do not use F9 to restore the BIOS default settings and not enable the NUMA function in the BIOS.

    3. In Figure 8-13, choose Legacy CD ROM > Virtual DVD-ROM VM 1.1.0, and press Enter.

      The node is restarted multiple times during installation. After 1 hour, when the operating system login page is displayed, the installation is complete.

      After the installation, if the page shown in Figure 8-15 is displayed, press Enter to display the login page.

    5. After the installation, you can log in to the storage node as user root (The default password is Root@storage.) and run the cat /etc/EulerLinux.conf command to check the image version.


If the KVM is disconnected, operations are interrupted. By default, the remote console timeout period of the iBMC platform is 5 minutes. If no operations are performed during this period of time, the KVM is automatically disconnected, mirror file data stops being accessed, and production mirroring fails to be reinstalled. You can choose either of the following methods to resolve this problem:
  • Open the KVM again and reload the mirror file to install production mirroring.
  • In Set Remote Console Timeout Period that resides in the lower part of the Remote page, set Timeout Period(minutes) to 0, which indicates that there is no timeout limit, and reinstall production mirroring. After the installation, restore Timeout Period (minutes) to 5.

During installation, if the interface is stuck at least 60 minutes after Waiting for device is displayed, a service disk in a node may be faulty. For details about how to solve the problem, see section Production Mirroring Fails to Be Reinstalled for a Storage Nodes in the troubleshooting guide of the corresponding service. See section Preparing for Installation > Obtaining Software Packages and Documents to obtain the troubleshooting guide.
