Configuring the BIOS

Configuring the BIOS

This section describes how to configure the basic input/output system (BIOS) for the G560 V5.

Scenarios

Set the BIOS for the G560 V5 in remote control mode.

The operations include:

  • Resetting the server to go to the BIOS
  • Querying the IP address of the iBMC network port
  • Setting the System Language
  • Setting the BIOS password
  • Setting the server boot mode
  • Setting the first boot device

For other settings, see the Huawei Server Purley Platform BIOS Parameter Reference.

NOTE:
  • The password complexity check function is enabled by default.
  • A simple password is easy to crack, which makes the system vulnerable. You are advised to use a password that meets complexity requirements or to enable the password complexity check function.
  • To ensure system security, change your initial password at your first login and change the password periodically.
