Function Description

Fault Diagnose Management (FDM) provides automatic fault diagnosis of the entire system. FDM includes fault data collection and analysis, fault diagnosis and locating, fault prewarning, and device health analysis. The iBMC uses Huawei proactive failure analysis engine (PFAE) to implement FDM.

During routine operation and maintenance, you can view information about the faulty components and related historical events on the page, and take troubleshooting measures.

Not all the iBMC versions support the FDM PFAE function. If supported, the FDM PFAE function can be used only after it is enabled on the BIOS.

  • On the BIOS of the Purley platform, choose Advanced > System Event Log > FDM and set the FDM function.
  • The 2288H V5 supports the FDM PFAE function from iBMC V260.

  • The 1288H V5, 2288 V5, 2488 V5, and 5288 V5 support the FDM PFAE function from iBMC V316.


Choose Diagnostics from the main menu, and select FDM from the navigation tree.

The FDM page is displayed.

The information displayed on this page may vary with the iBMC version.
